St. William of Bourges (patron of the University of Paris)

there is a way in which

to wander, to start out

into the world with

intentions of changing


the reason my insides

are so swollen is the

weight of all these

miracles that bloom

in my lungs

and flutter

in the dark red light

of my kidneys

this sunset of death

is so bright, I swear

that I’m on fire

and I’m certain

this cilice proves

that sin is as empty

as this last breath,

quiet as the body

I leave behind.
