Palm Sunday


, , 404 Not Found
The only thing staining my palms is Sharpie ink.
A hypocrite who loves liturgy
and science isn’t likely to bleed
for her faith, though I watched that movie last night on cable,
the one with Gabriel Byrne as the sexy
priest and Patricia Arquette as the unduly afflicted,
and I stare at my palms all through church
willing them to bleed something other than a grocery list,
thinking how good it would feel to be a saint,
thinking how I need to write milk on my hand before I forget.
