The Gentile

1

I am bred in the darkness
of an Irish hotel-room
to drink to Jesus
always

2

on a guided tour
of the Freemasons’ Hall
I exit bronze doors:
Hiram’s

3

in The William Morris
I break my back
on a tatty red seat
dreaming

4

of a Jewish woman
who bought a box
of assorted fruit condoms
for me
