This collection of poetry follows the order of a Lutheran worship service. Individual poems function as mock liturgy and the speakers or addressees as fictitious congregants. Because the poems replicate select voices of a congregation, they are informed by experiments in diverse voices and forms, including parody and homage, sonnet and villanelle, dramatic monologue, lyric, and narrative.
