Monastic Pose

To walk inside monastic walls
must gait as though belonged
shed looking as some out of place
and whistle Catholic songs
just swing about a rosary
now chant some somber Psalms
then sign the cross and genuflect
no papalistic qualms
to tread upon the turf of monks
like following a God
requires a habit made of skin
from beatific sod.

This one, written back in August while on a retreat day at the Abbey of Gethsemane, is dedicated to my favorite Roman Catholic friend, Matt Maher, (even more fun here) who may have the call. ;-)

I am going in the spring for about a week to two weeks. Then in the fall I am going to move there for a year to learn the lanquage and be an elementary school teacher's assistant or something like that.
