May I Hack Yer Homily?

hack homiliers here
among them’alls ad hominems,
don’t drink from that bright colored cup made in China
you’ll die from lead poisoning in 20 years, he said
to a COPD tobacco puffer,
a souvenir from St. Louie Louie,
but when she sat the cup atop her Bugler can
and taps it with her fingernail it chimes
she wanders if
when emptied it will sound different
or will she sound different,
on caffeine how can you tell
who honors one another?
it is in the tenor of the human voice
a musical instrument that needs no cases,
no strings, no plucks or hammers,
it is the ting of the heart strings we hear
when we remove the banana from our ear.
