Baptized

I still have yet
To be baptized.
Am I just waiting
For this ship to capsize?

Or for my friends
To toss me overboard
During the ceaseless storm
Sent by my Lord?

I’ve ignored the call
To Nineveh’s shore
But this only delays
God’s call for much more.

Mid-Midlife Crisis

There’s nothing better
Than a mid-midlife crisis.
At the peak of your prime,
Catching up on lost time,
Fighting off vicious vices

By keeping yourself busy
And taking in all of the city
Without a care
For what its price is.

So long as you’re no longer
Left to your own devices.
