Is it sacrilegious to think of nuns changing into their skivvies?

The nuns
As long as I can remember
Have always been
At the farmer’s market
Selling their baked goods.
They wear full grey habits.
Yesterday it was
Almost 100 degrees.
They do not appear
To sweat,
Those nuns
In gray wool.
I certainly would.
I still wonder
If they have
Alternate habits
For different seasons
Or if they return home
And drink iced tea
Change into
The nun version
Of skivvies.
