For Heaven's Sake

Two local boys arrested, hide
their faces on page one today.
Purveyors of ecstasy,
they’ve spread their gospel even under bail
and proximity of prison bars
pushing this year’s abbreviated heaven.

Matteo Ricci like other travelling carriers,
ignored threat of Ming dynasty dungeon,
not afraid to extol the ecstasies
of divine fellowship
back when heaven was a larger place.
