Quadrille #38

14 Aug

( write a poem of precisely 44 words, including the word dream.)

Notes found on the refrigerator[8/14/17]

    I was brought up to be a Jesuit Priest, but destined to live the life of a monk. Escaping the nun’s training, because of their aversion to listening to Hank William’s “Your Cheatin’ Heart” playing in the background— I dreamed as the early mystics.

    Nuns typically didn’t care for any music that wasn’t religious or “innocent”. Nice write.

    Would love more poems about the early mystics. This intrigues me.
