Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

Once I've gone through water

In the name of the Father

Son and Holy Ghost

I've come before Pontiffs 

At the Blessed Sacrament of Christ

I've taken bread; wine

Of His Holy Body and Blood

A ritual I hardly fathome 

Countlessly, I've knelt in the pew

My heart broken in nodes

Rosary vibes; benediction 

White robes of human-angels

Sprinkling Holy Water

On hardened hearts of slabs

I shock at stickless sermons 

Of Holy Mass of Matrimony  

And then before me

Is the reality of my world

How myself in a wild dance

Of heightened faith

Have mimicked love 

To a private joke

How in a ballad of tears

I've doctored myself a dunce

When love itself should be 

The true religion of man!
