Sister Mary

The day heaven escaped
Hell did too.
And you, all gentleness and piety
stood behind the altar
fingers pressed
to the folds
of a Bible.
Praying for a way out.
Praying to know the end
of the story
you started
with Amen.

  1. My husband was raised Catholic and doesn’t anymore. I was not raised religiously. Our kids are heathens, just like me. It’s alarming what has been/is done in the name of religion. So much hypocrisy.
