I know a monk

I know a monk,

living between Cairo and Alexandria,
who has let go of all earthly possessions
including the name his mother gave him.

He told me the story of how
she phoned him on his Nokia 6600
and told him that she was going to visit

and he told her not to come

because he had let go of all earthly attachments

instead
he prays, draws saints and the Son of God

and sits at an old, beat up computer
and teaches himself

how to use photoshop.
