he would display ineptness with the comment.
To date, he has reported it on blogs, on podcasts,
texted it, called friends relentlessly announcing.

the monastic life, to channel deities.
Never will I feel at ease in public,
pronouncing words that should not cohabit sentences.
Faith exists to be dismantled, later taken up
selectively and solo, where a calmer life begins.
