This poem analyzes Gian Lorenzo Bernini's infamous sculpture, The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. After visiting the sculpture in Rome while studying abroad for Creative Writing, I decided to write a ziuhitsu about the way it captured me. In this poem, I analyze the sensuality within the sculpture and its history, and my own hang ups about queerness and sex.
