Wednesday

Wednesday is Catechism Day

Catholic kids get out early

from school to St. Cecilia’s

up three blocks, through some yards

stop to smoke some Kents

fine stolen sixth-grade cigarettes

then screech and swirl into the church’s basement

the nun drones on…

fidget…

sleep

she sings of Hell and other things

who knows?

excused to run up and out to the alley

two more cigarettes

then Sen-Sen, six for a penny

then home.
