St. Edith Stein aka St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross

I need to be

less sprawling--

keep my fingers close

to this throbbing body.

I just want to be lifted

out of these steel arms

that rust in the rain.

my home is being eaten

by a swarm of fire ants.

they cover the fields,

chew at the eaves

of our house,

plot to make sure

we never get out
