Surface of Saint

23 April 2009 No Comment

Saint Colette is worried on the morning of her adventure, where will she go? The goldenrod fields are free but full of fleas and she is cannot damage her skin. Have they noticed the pox? The other nuns are catty and gossip under the grapevine as they knit the cowls for the priests. She is charmed by brother Eugene who bathes in the back courtyard in the metal tub. He has interesting folds of flesh, she is curious about his hair, its color is like red earth. Afterward they wash the bin and stamp the grapes, their small, calloused feet turn crimson. Eugene measures her on her deathbed, she is barely an inch long, she has shrunk, her body like a small thin host and the pox cover every inch of her. She is allowed to keep the roses in her hands and her lovely smile.
