i didn’t even know I was waiting
or that it was coming
but clearly they did
and we are celebrating.
‘It is a great piece of skill to know how to guide your luck even while waiting for it.”
you know you’ve been waiting quite a long time
at the secretary of state’s office
when even a minivan load of nuns get restless.
“I sometimes think I was born to live up to my name.
how could I be anything else but what I am having been named madonna?
i would have either ended up a nun or this.”
