Apostolic is a branch of the Pentecostal faith. It is based on the Book of Acts, specifically chapter two and the story of the Holy Spirit meeting the disciples in an Upper Room.
This poem appears in my book, Aggressive: The Inherent Violence of My Beastly Unbecoming.

Growing Up Apostolic

 

Although I learned to fear the rapture

 

(my soul at stake in heavenly hands

dealt, played by demon and divine

seated 'round felt-lined tables in

velvet galaxies)

 

it was my father who taught me

most effective

that people can disappear for reasons

far less mystical
