The Postulant Béatrice on the Feast of the Epiphany, 1789

From the Notes of Donatien Alphonse François, dit Le Marquis de Sade:

[Convent of the Bernardines, Abbaye Royale de Panthémont, Paris]

 

Juan-Paolo Perre

 

Her words…pent up with syntax

and wanton like swollen scholars,

leaked from her nude lips.

And for moments on end

her ridiculously oversized garments

staved off all movement

and stayed prodigiously stiff and still

in spite of a fervent zeal

for word becoming flesh.
