Some writing from last night.


Crazy with pain a crooked man
offers his crooked hand to God
in the sacristy  with a prayer

Please make my one hand
like the other  he prays  his hand
above his head  then collapsing

in his lap he sees his prayer
answered  both hands crippled
Yes  he thinks
yes   of course  –
a beggar is as good
as  a horse
