Holy Skirts

Thought about holy skirts — to tune of — Wheels are growing on rosebushes . — Beneath immovable — carved skirt of forbidding sexlessness — over pavement shoving — gliding — nuns have wheels.
Undisputedly! since — beneath skirts — they are not human! Kept carefully empty cars — running over religious track — local — express — according to velocity of holiness through pious steam — up to heaven!
What for —
what do they unload there —
why do they run?
Senseless wicked expense on earth's provisions — pious idleness — all idleness unless idleness before action — idleness of youth!
Start action upstairs — he?
How able do that — all of sudden — when on earth — machinery insufficient — weak — unable to carry — virtuous?

Virtue: stagnation.
Stagnation: absent contents — lifeblood — courage — action!
action-n!

Why here?
What here for — ?
To good? ah — !? hurry — speed up — run amuck — jump — beat it! farewell! fare-thee-well — good-bye! bye!
ah — bye-ye-ye!

We — of this earth — like this earth!
make heaven here —
take steps here —
to possess bearing hereafter —
dignity.

That we know how to enter:
reception room — drawing room —
banquet hall of:
aby ssmal serious jester
whimsical serene power!
Poke ribs:
old son of gun —
old acquaintance!
Kiss: knees — toes!
Home — !
Our home!
We are home!
After:
smiling grim battle —
laughter — excitement —
swordplay —
sweat —
blood — — !
After accomplishing —
what sent for to accomplish.
Children of His loin —
Power of power.
