My Vocation

Sometimes I think I should have been a nun,
A simple sister telling beads and praying on her knees,
Estranged from life, from sun to setting sun,
A bride of Christ, protected, safe from dark and windswept seas.

:::
Behind the veil, imprisoned in a cell,
My rage and lust for life contained within those cloistered walls,
No worldly taint to point the path to hell,
My senses filled with holy grace, immune to satyrs’ calls.

:::
But in my heart I know this vision false,
A wish to obviate all choice, to abdicate my needs.
With outstretched arms I dance the Devil’s waltz,
And wear, vainglorious – instead of telling – all my beads.
