To give birth a virgin

It was in the life of Mary

To give birth a virgin

Mother of Jesus

How was that not impossible

Questions to answers we may never fully know

That her hymen was not pierced

Not first by the phallus of a man

When she conceived her child

Relating orally

Petting to keep in virginity

Not the problem of a man

As it slipped through the crack

Artificially inseminated

She lost her virginity

Delivered of a baby

Memories

He never seems to leave her
because she lives inside;
the pleasant and the hard
and all the shades between.

Touch me,
move me,
hamper me,
heal me;
complicit in where I am today—
where I am tomorrow
if I’ll let.

To choose because of you;
to choose despite you;
you appear as you will
something to relish or leave.

Love.

Experience.

People.

Choices.

Living.

Memories.
