Not Rosaries Nor Missals – The Source Of Sin – July 2013



an enclosed space
at the nuns I liked
the candies for sale
to jump rope
to play ball
rare smiles rising
they wanted no
males around
we were separated
there was peace
and what they
called purity
I loved this one
it was like a long
silence of whiteness
suspended until
my face was too pretty
my eyes large as deer’s
my mind a pond of flowers
till they claimed
I was the source of sin
