Life Boats

I read Hafiz to a nun today.
The one about relegion
being a ship and poets
the lifeboats
and all the crazy people
jump overboard.
She leaned on the counter
with her elbow
supporting her chin.
Then I read her the one
about the elephant and the ant.
"Is that all?," she asked and walked off.
