Patron saint,   p. 32


Page 32

 
Patron Saint 
Send me Saint Sebastian, 
stick-with-it Sebastian, 
stuck through with all those arrows, 
speared, spitted, skewered. Saint Bull's-eye. 
This guy could take it. No bullet to bite, 
no blindfold, no whining. Oh patron saint 
of pincushions and porcupines, 
oh saintly sieve, oh holiest of men, 
oh stickler for God's truth, you who healed 
and headed back for more, pray for us.
