92.

Do you think
if you shake hands
with the pontiff
and you’re, well, you:

that your bones will splinter;
that you’ll immolate on the spot;
that the heavens will crack
with the fury of the triune God;

or, that the earth would just open
and bring you low through
the simple expedient
of refusing to support you?

You’ve woven a narrative so foreign
to faith, even Rome must sigh.
