5.

My little Gideon Bible

Had twenty pages or so

Of John 3:16

In various languages

At its opening

These would be the pages

I’d carefully pull from the seems

Roll and fill and wet with my lips

Then spark and flame and inhale

Within me

I’m not sure if I was trying to be

Defiant

Or trying to tell God he’s welcome

Within me
