She Excommunicated the Church

A poem about a girl

The quivering tales that rest just under her skin
would keep you up for days

The way they shut her questions outdoors
in the cold wet snow
left to be buried next to the dead
was just like them to do.

She knew this.
And yet here she is today, unraveling
unkempt

and still asking,

“How can we fix this?”
