anecdote # 188 - Sunday School Teacher

Anglican teacher said: class, time to put away the crayons.
her eyes saw me, radar visioned thru my thought-sin
thru my red-lit bones, palm, the darkness of the rose
crayon hidden in my fist. she and god permitted me.

I would have wanted to keep hold of the rose crayon too, if I'd dared.
