All Or Nothing At All

A therapist skirts the edge of lunacy

like a priest engages sin


An evangelist disavows poverty and fear

like a snake that sheds its skin


Together they paint the corridors black

with a promised light to come


Their patients and converts alone in the dark

salvation zero-sum
