St. Begga


legends are wrapped in foil

and waiting in the fridge.


leftovers from last night’s party.


this all started with a wink,

a story that ran from your grasp,

wound its way around all of our hips.


the vines kept climbing

toward the bedroom window,

so I cut them with a butterknife.


they dangled from the sill

like a torn hem of a curtain,


like your shirt over

the tops of your thighs.
