April 14th – Charles Simic

So, here is my chosen church – the Church of Celebrity. Hopefully I have done justice to my own prompt otherwise I’m gonna be disappointed. Enjoy:

Church of Celebrity

Each lit candle flickers like a camera’s flash. The pews are lined with eager-hands, with greed-filled and lusting eyes. The alter glitters well enough like Gold to forget its fittings are Pyrite. A well-heeled man with slicked back hair professes and panders about talent, about contracts.

All the while, a horned figure holds the preacher’s shadow as though it were the strings of a marionette.
