Clown Shoes and Battered Wings

A traveling priest stopped for tea, and when we were finished he asked me if I was going home now, and the moment he asked me that I stopped.

This is home: these clown shoes and battered wings, the shivering, and keeping warm by the memory of her voice when she said, "Be gone."
