Bible College Memory #3 by Lila Robinett

By Lila Robinett

Expelling fractured pencils

and dried ink, I found a bottle

of nail polish in the underbelly

of a bag from college. I recall

his fake leather couch

kneaded against my bare ass

and the next morning

my fingers folder in prayer,

nails painted Wild Nude.
