The teapot was full catering size
perfect for the church function
where I first met Sister Millicent.
She was balancing it on her head.
Her eyes were uplifted
so were her lips.
It was her party trick.
I didn’t know nuns did such things.

One thought on “Sister Millicent

  1. when we were just kids and she wanted to make our mother smile, this was my little sister Millie’s favorite trick. I’m glad she’s still doing it.
