a prayer in three acts


(after a period of fasting)

a desert hard ground cracked couldn’t
care less about rain anymore, and gave
the task of praying over to a spiny
tip cactus…who

instead tells a memory toad once
seen sitting by the mirage shore
to hop on over to the very edge of
worry and wake the giant…who

although he wished to stay sleeping
opened one eye and peered skyward
without a hint of meekness and said,
rain god rain, shower us with…pity

(another 10 minute poem)
