[I realize this is a lot of posts, but I just got too many poems kicking around my head and a need to share them.]

I grew up in flannel-graph
With Moses and the parables:
The Sower, The Prodigal;

Crawling under pews,
Collecting sanctuary dust,
Singing Father Abraham.

I was supposed to set these aside
After Sunday school
When I left for University,

But flannel graph is sticky,
That’s how it works—and
The songs were too catchy.
