St. Robert Bellarmine (patron of canonists)

she glued thick black lace

on all our family portraits

as if we were all looking at the world

from behind intricate fences, as if

we kept ourselves unaware

and locked away. she always said

our windows are too wide and she’d

almost tear the curtains from their rods

trying to pull them closed. some people,

they just won’t understand. some people.
