the sound of church bells on one side,
the sound of records spinning on the other.
how does that badger you inside?
the decision between family accordance
your photographs hashtag: blessed.
but your photos show a slip of skin
to a dip in the tune.
you’re out of self-control.
your vocals don’t add up
to the movement in your hips.
the church bells are ringing.
they’re calling to claim your soul
but you’re still dancing.
hesitant. they see it in your eyes.
but we all know,
freedom comes with a price.
