Words distract our intelligence to obscure what is shown. Everything is sleight of hand. They are not wearing any clothes.

Apprehension

I want something good to happen. I wish my thoughts were positive. I want to feel my face again; I promise to wash my hands.

Only on Sunday

There is a baptist church in the center of the city. This lovely church has a diverse congregation. Every week, the church encourages the group to give their tithes and […]
