Flypaper from HeavenLisa A. Flowers
This is how
the souls of the unspeakable
& kept from reincarnation
this or a roach motel
luring the dead
into a little box where a light
turned to resemble that of Christ
There are roach motels set out around almost every portal to heaven.
Watch for them
but do not beware, my love
For when the sweet die
Its adhesive turns to honey on their feet.
