Stephanie Roberts

About this Poet:
Stephanie Roberts is a published essayist, and short story writer with a passion for poetry.

Derailed

Early, I stare at the screen
editing
the hobby of the damned
each keystroke this morning,
Praises.
In my basement temple
MP3s deliver worship
at my Apple altar.
In an atmosphere thus consecrated
abruptly I am jolted,
overwhelmed
by the worth of Jesus.
In veneration,
I  weep
the ecstasy of wailing
guitars and Hammond organs
torturing me.
