we pray to Mary Magdalene by Jessica Robinson

i.
at war with the moths, we
turn off the lights
so they think we’re not home

look at your reflection
she looks like she’s in grade five
doesn’t she make you want to
hit her

grade ten you is standing
in the middle of the road
you think she might get hit by a
car
she’s too high
she doesn’t care she doesn’t care

ii.
in line at the drive through
the people on the radio
are talking about me
again
