Some Prayers Wear…

Some prayers of saints

Wear hand-tatted ivory lace

Whereas others are like old

Mismatched chipped china.

The much-blessed sing their

Gratitudes, melodious notes

Run all around the scale.

And midnight supplications

Of desperate souls, spiral down

Long list of life’s itching hungry needs

Summed up at dawn—then a pause

For breath, sighed humble closing:

“I’ll settle for not being

Forgotten, Lord…please don’t

Lose track of me.”
