Poem 188 – In His Heaven, Elvis & Glory

In His Heaven, Elvis & Glory

His strong fingers close around the diamond handle on heaven’s door.
No need to knock, he has the key – it is Elvis shaped, an exaltation of hallelujahs,
a velvet voice paving a path of praise for a dignified entrance to the pearly gate.

This worship is heaven sent. The father, the son and the holy ghost on bended knee
for the glory of this majestic human – a father with sons and daughters, a husband
whose love is eternal – a holy heart that beats beyond its failing body.

The delight is God’s with Elvis to serenade and rejoice in the coming of this splendid soul. The truth is marching through him. God has led and he will follow. The joining of
these extraordinary spirits will create an everlasting choir of kings:

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

Rhinestones and tassels,
angels and saints,
in devoted genuflection
for his ultimate
homecoming.
