Purple Silk

When I was a little girl,

I used to wear purple, silk dresses on Easter

to go to church with my slightly religious parents.

We took pictures in front of the Japanese Maple tree.

Year after year,

it was always the same.

But now that I am grown up,

I spend Easter mornings thinking about things

that are much more shallow

than anything biblical

and committing sins

that I was told I should “wash away.”
