Random Poem:

You preached, “Catalina

was pricked all over---
perfumed women doubted
she was divine.”
My fear of needles and non-nasal
discomfort for eau de parfum
may not have been born from you
talking about divinity from Siena, but
how women came to be my preference
could definitely be the doubt that any man
may ever be trusted, when you,
preacher 'bout them good guys too,
from Assissi and Padua,
you, the advocate of the beaded novena,
fell prey to perfumed women
not my Momma
over and over and
over, and
I am over,
no doubt, to the thought you're divine--
turned out you are a prick
brazen enough to preach.
