we used to chant the above proverb during sunday school

alongside clumsy children in

brightly colored classrooms

studying men and their miracles

we remember sitting in the choir stand during service 

ma catching our eye from the congregation 

gesturing with two intertwined fingers

reminding us to cross our ankles

a young lady doesn’t sit with her legs wide open

train up a child

we were raised 

cross ourselves into the smallest square inch

train up a child
