Pasteurized promises

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Saint Francis and Sister Death” by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer: humble, praise, dance, shame, partner, hut, heart, ashes, baby, doors, dinner, mystery

Pasteurized promises

Mystery of life

Her heart is Thomas’s

But always on strife

Mystery of life

Humble praise but no shame

Partner’s dance so rife

Baby’s not to be blamed

Her heart is Thomas’s

Even not perfect

So ashes to ashes

Connect or conflict

But always on strife

Burnt dinner so he said

That is real life

Give up or go ahead*
