is this what David felt like
when Goliath squatted beneath him in the grass, helplessly,
i wondered, upon leaving the district court this morning.
as of today, i am merely christian, no longer catholic.
all i want for this act to mean is that
the times of patriarchal hoardings of power and privilege
are having to pass their zenith
once and for all.
i am doing my part;
you do yours.
