I think of you once a month, Cheryl

at communion

I have to tell you
that the sweetest
dumbest girl
in front of me
swallowed her bread
immediately

and I wondered
if she waited
for the juice
because
she was like me
who couldn’t stomach
the stuff

if she
needed a Cheryl
to pinch her nose,
ward off gags
and upchucks
and whisper
“blood of Christ”

    1. Love you too! Of course I think of you more than once a month. Peanut butter makes me think of you, menstrual cycles and aerobics, also whenever I mimic hurdling over this one exposed pipe on a running trail near my house. XO

  1. Awww…I have a Kelsey. But she loves bread and so do I – communion was often my favorite part of the mass because it meant I got to eat bread.
    Yes – I was quite pious.
