Christian habits

Throw salt over your shoulder to pierce 
the devil's eyes. This is how a grandmother teaches you.
a shield against the spirits, Saint Cyprianus- 
a totem against magic. Sometimes I forget 
the number of saints I have learnt by time 
but I always remember to cross myself 
whenever I cross a church's door, a habit of the faithful 
a shield against the sins inside of me.
