Petition to St. Agnes

I am the dress in winter, white,

torn from the child’s window,

 

always. I am the rabbit inside the hole

inside the mother, scratching,

 

always. I am the apple burning,

the wax gathered under nails of a girl,

 

sixteen, rising above a boy, hoping

he will be the one to save

 

the earth from burning, always.
