terza rima [backdated sept 28th]

she called herself cat
though her name was christine
what’s the matter with that?

her knees were rarely seen
never wearing a skirt
her legs running long and lean

often fallen in the dirt
when strangers offered aid
her reply was always curt

her eyes looked like jade
before, with arms akimbo
from the ground she prayed
