throwing sticks
for St. Christopher the Patriarch
gets a tennis elbow


on The Holy Mountain - a novelty
long prayed for


dead and smiling
the elder left his shoes
under the bed


lifting up his sticharion
the Patriarch cools his feet
in the sea of unchange

raging against
tight trousers the Patriarch
calms down on frankincense
