Sunday’s Best

I went to church this morning
in a corner of my mind
where the women all smelled Beautiful
and the men all sounded happy.
We knew it all a lie but what better place
for liars to congregate than a room
where our lisping stammering selves
could stand shoulder to shoulder
and sing nobler, sweeter songs?
Maybe Sunday’s best was
not so much something we put on
as it was a hope to dream of
for a couple of hours with friends.
I don’t know that this was true,
that we worshiped that keenly.
But like most things, it could have been.
