Angela Roquet

He called out Jesus Christ in the downpour
louder than his thoughts spewed forth those words
wet in an Angora sweater shroud of Turin
and slick khaki burial cloth
his shiny new shoes baptized
flooded in a deluge of sin
wiped at his face with a handkerchief
confessed under his breath
the disbelief, and shaken faith
floated away with today’s predictions
from a false prophet weatherman
Satan on the radio station
