Expat Poetry | Feral Nuns

By John Richardson, copywriter

Feral Nuns

wild

undomesticated

savage

 

unvirgin Mary and her 20 dogs of war

running towards me

convent hens out for a bit of prenuptial yoke

piercing blackened eyes with unreligious intent

 

a black boy collapses to his knees

“Save me sister” he cries

“Fuck off you cunt” howls the pregnant sister

wedding veil on top go her habit

fag in mouth

fags in all their mouths

 

barbaric 

brutish

uninhibited

 

their unrestrained joy leaves a boiling wake

it tosses me like an ungovernable emotion on to the wall

it’s depth crushes my lizard loins

 

feral

ferocious

tempestuous

 

they pass

I never recover
