Leonardo and his parish priest
Poem by Josef Lesser   •   Art by Mitch Miller

forgive this intrusion father
but that woman just leaving
your confessional is a liar,
Mona is a lying bitch father
if she whispered I fucked her
she dreams she wishes and
at your feet in silence she prays,

believe me father I am blessed,
a talent a gift of nature, and when
Mona has shared my bed you
the town the world will all know,
for she will wear forever a secret
smile on her lips and dancing eyes
scrutinizing all who stop and stare.
