In vino veritas

For Him the bitterness
Of sin and suffering –
For us the sacred sweetness
That true forgiveness brings.

Strange Bedfellows

Carnal lust and spirit’s pride
Disdain to meet upon the streets –
Yet how oft I’ve the twain espied
Between my heart root’s very sheets.

To be in love is not like hemp or wine,
Tisʼ sweeter far than any verse of mine.
Intoxicated senses are but frame;
The source and end of Eros are the same.

Sainthoodʼs the calling
Not to be faultless,
But to love God,
Ourselves and others
To a fault;

Not to escape the world,
But to hallow
All around us
While we live
Upon this planet.

Every man of steel
needs his Kryptonite
to make him human

From overripe and ancient stocks

Of decadent and cluttered culture

Over-sated Satire mocks;

That posing parasitic vulture.
