Procession of Mary, Queen of the Universe

Mary is slightly on a slant
and shudders with every step
the four men take
as she’s marched under
the baking sun.

Sweat drips down slowly
clinging to the bald head
of the cantor
as he sings to
time beat with his trudging.

Then the mic passes to
the tall priest and
his next mystery.

Traffic meanders and many gawk,
the children openly,
and their eyebrows knit
as the parade
of strange
old fashioned believers
rings barely
discernible bells.
