Memory: stumbling
to their stone with you, placing
fresh flowers on top.

Spyhole


 

Sinister spyhole—
someone squints at passersby,
wild heart thump-thumping.

Shadow Sweeper


 

Blindly determined
to keep herself from sin, she
grabbed her sturdy broom
and swept away the shadows
that leered at her like demons.

 
** ** **
 
Deep quagmires of sin
can be swept away, my dears,
with a sturdy broom.

Insomnia


 

When I cannot sleep,
holy ones draw near to me,
bearing words of life.
