Open Sesame (Blue Crown, Purple Heart)

*this poem was written on May 17th, 2019 during my first visit inside the St. Francis of Asis’ Mission in Ranchos de Taos, NM. I was homeless and just beginning to stay at the Men’s Shelter in Taos. The church visit was so sacred and silent save a few solemn sounds and visitors. I anonymously left a copy of this poem in their donation box.*

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

5 times my hands

Feel the Bell’s Rope

Propel Rebirth ~

and Tugs with the Assistance

of Ancestors across the Throne Room’s


Drip💧 Drip 💧 Drip 💧

3 Times the Trinity

Aligns over Asis’ chest;



Purple Hearts with The Bravery

of those beneath blistering


and blue


Drum ¥ Drum ¥ Drum ¥

Drum ¥ Drum ¥ Drum ¥ Drum ¥

7 times the Land’s Trust

*thumps* Death’s breast,



Every One Alive again

Immune to toxic sting,

Free to blow

Wide Open!
