Text-messages fling like bows and arrows

heart and lung transplants

sound glamorous through fiber optic wire


there's a story in this shot glass

saint for every ailment

mother behind every orphan

in the Philippines the Virgin Mary

gets maxed out like a credit card

and a distant relative racks up phone bills

with holes in her lungs

too much beer in the liver

screaming for whatever god

to take her out of Utah
