St. Maria Goretti (patron of chastity, teenage girls, rape victims, purity, and forgiveness)

I’m waving to you

from the other side

of this inky city.

with all that goldenrod

wound in and around

my lungs,

I struggle to catch

one blue breath.

from the end of this pier

that I call my heart,

I try to forgive you.

If only I could be

so brave.
