Lives of Angels, Human Bodies

Welcome to Utah, home
Of the Latter Day Saints.
(No jokes please. We're Mormon.)
Somewhere in Don Quixote,
An offended character,
Caught in a frame in a frame,
Exclaims that saints are people

Who try to live angels' lives
Within their human bodies.
Without being ironic
Or insulting, but honest,
I wonder if we aren't all saints,
All angels and all bodies,
Hybrids struggling to live at all?
