Supper at the Asylum

This room is like a great cathedral
when the people have gone
and the tired priest
takes off his robe
and eats alone

haunted by symbols.

From Songs and Letters, originally published November 7, 2007.

Note: “Supper at the Asylum” is part of the twenty-poem cycle of “asylum poems” that make up Volume 15 of Songs and Letters.
