Hands leaving passionate marks
for a crying nun
that has sinned her life away.
Let her pray instead of running away.
Let her cry warm wasteful tears.
***** fingernails explore
the filthy nuns surface.
Tracing bruises
and spreading pain
from the spanking received
for being too needy.
Forming nuances of red
on the prime target.
Sweet syrup fingers
dripping down the arms
of a freshly dead man.
Defeat for the nun
who now is done.

I'll cry you a river,
so I can bath in salty,
bright and perfect pain.
Let me shiver from
the words you tell me.
Let me drown
in emotional aching.
Let me summon
tenderness in my bones.
Make me cry I said,
and so the monster did.
Breathing like a beast
so much that only a priest
would be able to save
a nun like me.
For I go to church
and cry for my God
every Sunday
to Monday.
What God didn't know
was that crying means more
than sadness to me.
It means pleasure in ways
that are rotten and spoiled.
It means the Devils hands touch me
without God's permission.
Oh God, secrets are fun
and thrills run
up and down
so much that I end with a crown.
And I don't need your approval
for I've done it already
and I dare do it again
and again and again.
Till I'll make you cry and you'll
be just like me.
Even if you don't agree.

The nun, plump, robed in a black
and white habit, walked across
the front of the class of girls.

Fay sat half way down on the left
next to the girl Millicent Sullivan
(whose aunt was a nun in Ireland).

"Immaculate Conception," the nun
said," what does it mean and to
whom does it refer?" The girls

stared at the nun whose two chins
wobbled as she spoke. Millicent
didn't raise her hand even though

she knew the answers, but put on
her innocent gaze. "Some of you
girls must know the answers,"

the nun said moodily. Fay raised
her hand and heads turned to look
at her. "Well, Fay?" She felt herself

blush and lowered her hand from
view. "It means one conceived
without blemish or sin," she said

in a soft voice. The nun stood up
to her full five foot frame. "And
what does conceived mean in this

context?" A few girls sniggered,
others gazed at Fay. The classroom
seemed to shrink to a white glow

containing just her and the nun.
"Not sure, Sister Luke," she said.
The nun gazed around the room.

"I am sure one of you girls know
the answer to this," Sister Luke said.
The girls just stared at the nun.

Millicent raised her hand and said:
"It means when the man's stuff
meets the woman's egg." Some

girls blushed, others looked puzzled.
"You have the idea. Now to whom
was it applied?" Sister Luke asked

staring at other girls. "The ****** Mary?"
A thin girl at the back of class replied doubtfully. Fay knew it was, but said

nothing more. The nun went on to
elaborate details. Fay was puzzled
by the man's stuff and egg. She

wondered if Benny knew. She would
ask him after school when she met
him on the way home. He knew

about things like battles and wars
and once kept a goldfish in a glass
bowl until he lost it down the sink.

He might know, she mused, she
didn't know otherwise what to think.

He said “that one there,
“she seems sweet and kind, but she’s actually a nut.”
(he says he’s a nut too so I don’t mind)
she smiled and said “you know I always wanted to be a nun”
(she misheard “nun”)
(they’re both old)
He was confused.
I explained to both of them,
we all laughed.
They are joyful people.

The next evening,
my dad brought it up
the man laughed and laughed some more
he gave me a hug and said “I’m sorry,
“I tried to imagine you in a habit,
but if I ever saw you in one,
I’d burst out laughing.
Because your face is so joyful,
and your eyes radiate joy
and I would never be able to keep a straight face”

And I think that’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said
about me.
Even with all my pain and struggles I can still radiate joy?? It makes me happy.

The Grand Silence, had over
the years, made conversation
difficult for Sister Scholastica,

and she wondered if other nuns
had found that the case in their
lives. The Grand Silence which

took place after the office of
Compline until Mass the following
day, was not an easy thing to

keep in mind when she first
became a novice nun many
years before, but now it was

a matter of fact in her life, and
after Mass she found it difficult
to learn to converse, especially

if she was the Guest Mistress
and had to converse with female
guests who stayed, young girls

who thought they had a vocation
to be a nun, and she knew the first
thing they must learn, is to not talk

as much, not to need to converse,
but to gain that inner silence which
is necessary for a contemplative

nun. Now it was part of her armour,
part of who she was, and words were
used sparingly like coins from a

miser's purse, and she knew some
sisters found it harder than others,
and when she first came she realized

just how hard it was to not talk when
another person came in the room
before Mass, or on the way to the

wash room for water and to see
another sister and not say good
morning or how did you sleep?

She waited in the cloister with the
other nuns, waiting for the bell to
toll for Mass to begin, and they

would enter the church chanting
the Latin entrance melody, the first
chance to use the voice since before

Compline the night before, and she
gazed into the cloister garth at the early
morning mist and birdsong, and knew

the time of silence would not be long.

This is the body
Of Christ, said Sister
James; I hold it now
Between fingers like

A sacred gem. My
Mother doubted the
Essence, said it was
Just bread, that any

More was just notions
In my childish head.
I feel the crispness,
See the whiteness, sense

The hidden Christ with
In the host. Father
Would hold his before
His eyes, then kiss it

Softly before he
Placed it in his mouth
And closing his eyes.
Mother said it was

All a magic trick
And a cartful of
Lies. I place the Christ
Upon my tongue, let

His presence be felt,
Sensing through the nerves
Of my being, His
Sacrifice, His pain

And hurt, His cruel
Crucifixion and
High resurrection
(Mother said it was

All fancy fiction)
Coming together
On my fleshy tongue,
Dissolving there, then

Gone, entering me,
Fulfilling, being
There, lifting me up,
To be, to love, to

Share. Mother would say,
Doubt it if you dare,
It’s just a sham, just
A con. When she was

Dying, ridden with
Cancer, I saw Christ
By her bedside sit,
Looking sadly on.
2010 poem
more often than not, a knightly surge
     combs a pawn me,
     especially after the stroke of midnight, when
hermetically sealed in my rookery,

     where bats in the belfry
     flap their wings at the speed
     of sound times ten
thence, this king heads to his counting house

     (which doubles asthma
     Perkiomen Valley bishopric)
     to economize on space,
     especially during tax time

     (as April fifteenth slowly approaches,
     me heartbeat doth) quicken
though becalmed, when imbibing
     idyllic, fantastic, and bucolic kingdom

     Americana paintings courtesy, sans nomen
Percevel Rockwell, thus jitteriness pacified,
     particularly speaking
     on the telly phone with Ken
Burns, whose trademark documentaries,

     particularly War between the States,
     where even roosting hen
got into the frayed scrimmage vis a vis, even
chilly being egged on to surrender as Ben

a fit to this American
     Civil War Yankee incarnate,    
whose doodling word
     ya probably don't give a hoot -Amen!
a man
in his
cerulean fit
always flight
his fascination
there with
his striped
shirt clean
that wimples
shall lie
in bed
with asters
attached in
beanie caps
today tonight
& tomorrow
in bloom
