The Marriage of Mary

Wedding Procession of the Virgin, Giotto, 1305

I was too young to know anything
about what I didn’t know.
And this is what you want

for your daughters? To go along
with the script and pay
with their lives. I’m young

and my son was once older than I
was when I was and he wasn’t yet.
He’s gone and not gone.

That’s what myth does, it stops
time to allow people to change
into costumes with different colors

and faces. Each mask
a girl with a different name,
inconspicuously covered in fabric.
