aunt bea
wasn’t
a church going woman
she was
confident in her faith
she would say
i don’t need
some old pastor
to tell me
what
when
and how
to believe
it is
what it is
and
it ain’t gonna change
so
imagine
my surprise
when
she asked me
to drive
her to church
though
none of my business
i did ask
why
she said
there’s a new young preacher
and
all the old ladies
and
their unwed daughters
will be out in force
all carrying their bibles
like cinderella’s shoe
and
that’s a show
i don’t  want
to miss
