No Penance

This, the church

enter through red doors

we are stained crimes, dust

the white pews turn black

and sit.

Enter through red doors

drown in chlorinated holy,

white pews turn black as we sit,

we expect white clean souls.

drown in chlorinated holy,

try to scrub off time,

we expect white like clean souls.

This steeple,

try to scrub off time,

we are stained crimes, dust

this steeple,

this, the church.
