A Prayer

Dear God
Make me a virgin
As the Magdalene,
Staring into the mirror
Of her forgiven immorality
Searching for an evidence
Of the Devil’s accusation;
Finding only
The death skull behind
And the rising light
Of the world’s candle
Before her.

With reference to the painting Magdalene at the Mirror by Georges de La Tour.
