I have always thought her priestess
rather than nun.
I could be an army
if led by her.
If you ask who taught her the Lord’s prayer,
she will say, my mother.
And if you ask her whether she is in a state of grace,
she has no answer.
She is a lie
or the greatest truth.
She is not quiet.
I am almost exactly like her,
except that I am not.
You know, they were only angry with her
because she wore a man’s clothes.
