Fluent

Once fluent in the immediate
immaculate language of bodies
but long since reduced
to the imperfection of words
to explain unexplainable
trying to figure out what
is brick and what is mortar
one must laugh, finally,
for the choir shouts “Amen”
all day while those who’ve
never been to that altar
cannot understand anyway
