prayer for living


 

sweet
mirrors of parts
martyrs of magic
cupped inside the eternal womb
some peddlers of art
from beyond the tomb
would you have
a little to eat
a little too much
to live
perchance to die
afraid alone always
sugar dissolving in sand
white water stuck
in your hand
the glove flung down
on a spotless land
spiral swish feather drift
and the beast
waits for decay
don’t forget the ants
