Fickle Muses an online journal of myth and legend
“calla” by Annie Dawid

The spells come
With praying hands to Saint Anthony,
And God separates the chaff from wheat.
Some wenches hung last week
One, my midwife, who delivered
They counted this upon their fingers
When I am dancing,
It is God in the midwife’s boots.
