Cathedral of aspiration

rock-grey
pressed Armani
at parapet level
a thin stew of rainwater through
the lips

ceiling
frescoes of stars
their copacetic cribs
their chrome and neon couplings and
their sins

heaving
musculature
straining the bas-relief
and off to the side a tiny
syringe

in glass
those famous lips
not autotuned but poised
at the rim of a porcelain
sewer

and we
huddled masses
gaze at the images
the raw slack-jawed wide-eyed envy
thrills us
