Would You Like to Dip Your Wing in My Glass of Milk?

He said,
You are the cream of the crop."
I believe it of myself.
I believe it of Sarah
(With her MDiv from Princeton),
Or of Simon
(With his background in philosophy
And metaphysics).
But me?--
Soured milk.
A fallen angel
Being given a second chance
At a pair of wings.

A flicker of recognition
At the sound of my name. 
What is he thinking,
This programme director of mine?
Will he grant me permission
To hear a bell ring?
