{A psychologist once told him}

A psychologist once told him
that he has a female brain
identified as being warm,
loving, compassionate,
nurturing, but he knows
that there is a male brain
lurking here and there
because he has been
scripted to power
and authority
and so the
binary war
between
the sexes
takes
place
between
orbiting
planets
Mars
and
Venus
encased
within
a boney
space —
the
Solar
System
of
his
head.
He is the first in the family to
cry while watching a movie, “Oh,
there goes dad again.” But
he is the first to roar
when sore and the
family shouts,
“Horror!”
Perhaps
such
schizophrenia-like behavior is
good for doing the tasks
of ministry, but sometimes
it feels like he is going
crazy. But part of the
Sophia wisdom of
growing old is
reconciling
things with-
in oneself
it could
be said,
so he
is seek-
ing
the
unitive
glory
of
peace
between
the
sexes
within
his
bony
head.
