A Cure for Deafness from Shooting the Moon

It is said that fifteen minutes
after her death Kateri Tekakwitha

(Mohawk girl, convert, soon-to-be Blessed)

became beautiful, no longer dark-skinned

but pale like a saint. After her eyes
and her flesh carved open by thorns.

In her new heavenly state
she hovered above a strip of blue-green earth,

a canoe floating on the distant lake.
Followers seized upon her premonitions -

the Mission lying in ruins on its side,
a Native burning alive on a cross –

and soon her unpockmarked image

could cure the sick and the dirt
from her grave cause a mother’s milk

to return or a dying child
to vomit a live worm.

A Jesuit flying through the air

as the chapel capsized
in a storm thanked Kateri

for saving him
and curing his deafness.
