This poem is an excerpt from an anthology titled "...But Here You Are." that will soon be published for free download as a PDF file by Authorpedia (WRR) towards April 1, 2019.
When my brother felt the world
closing in his throat,
you told him to pray.
After my sister’s house was broken into
by the branches of other men's bodies
you told her to pray.
When you wanted to take,
you preached that it is good to give
but when we needed, you told us to pray.
If part or half or the whole of what I have written
makes the blood of your belief scorch the net of your veins
please kneel too and pray.
God has heard people like us
pray for strange things
yours won't be the first.
