Today's poem is by Mary Ann Samyn
An Introduction to Devotion
Do you consider yourself adept? The face of
oh my and the body of a wish: this is the error
of sadness. Now you say, don 't implicate me.
Too late, sweetness. As in the Bonnie & Clyde dream . . .
Relentlessly acquisitive. As in, get ready
for us, God. This is small-time rapture. Soothe me.
Or else, I said to no one in particular. Back off!
