Sharon Olds - The Pope's Penis

It hangs deep in his robes, a delicate
clapper at the center of a bell.
It moves when he moves, a ghostly fish in a
halo of silver sweaweed, the hair
swaying in the dark and the heat -- and at night
while his eyes sleep, it stands up
in praise of God.

love this poem. It is wierd, in fact. However, It concerns with religion. The Sky and the earth are far away, after all. He is a human being, just like me. My penis live its life, specially at night.
