A Prayer For A Saintly Sinner

feet stumbled across
tumbled stone
where whispers of
ancient slippers
meet modern feet.
one stocking—
hands cradle
my hips and
i am rocked
in rhythm
with the cadence
of ghost murmurs
and plaintive
pleas and the
constant click,
of rosary beads.
my open mouth,
bathed in
sucking in stained
glass hues,
a sinner sanctified
while you enter me
like a prayer.
