The Day the Pope Resigned

By Mila D. Aguilar

The day
My ovary lining was scraped was
The day
The Pope resigned.

Home hurting
After the rape
By a cold machine
I was struck

By God's timing.
Did He mean me to live through it,
This deflowering
Of the human race

Via drone
And nanotech invasion
Of warmed wormy woolen guts?

Was the blood worth it?
Shall we meet midstream,
My Christ and I,
Or will He resurrect me

From my blasted smithereens
Disappearing unseen
Into some nuclear screen?
Does the answer matter?

I am saved,
And someone else is not.
I am saved!
But someone else is not.

Hallelujah! I am saved!

But alas, someone else is not...
