Spiritual Growth

Women, meat, all jaws, Hughie feared;
Church-fed fear.
Pruned Hughie rattling inside himself,
no rattling outside,
but bloated sensationless, bone-dry tinder.

All pray: feed the soul; Hughie feeds the soul
 ‘til his soul is ballooning  out of his body,
 and he giving thanks for spiritual growth.

Concrete-heavy Hughie, all aching,
walking the earth like a space thing.
