ORRERY

     We sacrifice the intellect to God. 
     -Ignatius Loyola 

Enlightenment,
secular
humanism, freedom

of religion—nothing.
Even now, I can feel
that gossamer,

itchy something
irritating—
the stubborn,

stiff, outer
corners
of my existence;

feel it
tugging
at the very end

just as I
still can sense
that it

did
at the
beginning—

feel it, even
as I'm speaking,
pulling me

awful tight
and thick
and uncomfortably

constricted—
here
in the middle.
