Shaped like a church
where to hear is prayer
the pews sawn apart
into separate seats save
the balcony benches.

Quiet like a church
and cold in accordance
with the carpenter’s
measure for harmony
and economical noise.

The sound rolls in waves
through the vast archipelago
of ears tuned to assumptions
and predispositions
of critics of the church.
