Why Robert Mapplethorpe is a Catholic Artist

          mapplethorpe
  after seeing the great HBO documentary
 
who would be interested
in a religion
whose central symbol
is an almost naked man
of perfect
proportions?
 
*
 
The Romans
crucified people
naked
not wearing
underwear.
the body part
of Xist
that you don’t see
is the
perfectly proportioned
penis.
much of Robert
Mapplethorpe’s
work is
a vast search
for that missing
member
 
*
 
it is the Devil’s
            it is the Devil’s
yearning
            yearning
for his lost
            for his lost
love
            love
