Summer Service

I might have become a priest. What a disaster that would have been. And yet, had it happened, I might have found it the most wonderful thing in the world. Or maybe it did happen — long ago and far away, in a rocky, mountainous land.

Summer Service

a fly on the eucharist —

               shsh, shsh

little children sound asleep
on the cool stones

on the cool stones
sound asleep

on the sanctuary floor.
