Evangelical (NaPoWriMo #18)

You out loud read the book like reading practice, Year 2, egged on by strict mistress, miss or mrs, encouraging rosary practice, own time prayers and library memberships.

You out loud read the words like Communion performance, Father Mike blessing cross-armed heathens born with godless families, faith in TV, business, practical degrees, Star Wars memorabilia.

You read the words, trace, sketch them like school trips to forts, Roman, gold leaf gift shop bookmarks and souvenir pencils.

You remember religion, once.
