Naming the Gospel

and soon.

Not in Halifax, not in Manitoba,
Not even in Golconda, not in St. Louis.

We were supposed to have some kind of category,
A classification

A name for a business,
a franchise –


Something lucky. As if it’s a formula,
as if fortune is concocted

and soon.

They will find us, command us to kneel
to their god – Buddha, Christ,
Allah, Nostradamus, Abraham Lincoln,
Holy Earl Grey Of the North Scones.

Our mouths will remain sealed,
Unborn.

Maybe in Baclayon,
In Loboc,
Maybe in Mandaue, or even in Mactan

and soon.
