Flannery

I’m reading Wise Blood by Flannery O’Connor.  In honor of her, a little wish:

 

Flannery

If I could slice and stab like Flannery

and then maybe

pour a little wine and oil

on the wounds I made,

if I could fierce open eyes

and then keep them that way

with love-heavy words,

it would be enough

I think.
