a gathering of broken saints



Francis and his creatures
dishonoured Christopher
blessed Patrick
the tired Monk
and crazy St. Jack

sit, chat, laugh
as little Teresa's flowers
fall

  3. I love that vow of Teresa.
    I've read The Dharma bums more times than I care to remember. Ah, the follies of youth!
    I find I can only relate to broken saints.

  11. Now that's a motley crew! St. Christopher struggling across the raging river, St. Patrick driving the snakes from Ireland, Ste. Therese, the little flower, and the St. Jack of Paul Theroux fame?
    Very creative, minimalist, and cryptic. Love it!

  12. St. Jack ain't whack. Kerouac. Oh yeah. Beans on an open fire holiness.
