Rehymenation – A Prayer


The confessional
Is like a rehymenation ward
Where putrid sin is vanquished
To the renewal of Aurora’s dawn
Which eventually (with time) heats up
To scorching Ra and at the strike of noon
Clothes come off, when the glare
Is as blinding as the awoken bliss
Quaking out from the epicenter
And that fault seemingly is
Once again cracked and torn
Like a redundancy-prone membrane
That needs a little bit of glue
To reglue-together
A rare fabric called virtue…
