What I Pray For
A dumpster filled with dirt and
rosemary dropped from the sky,
a portable Earth Room.
Born from a sentence meant
for another world, what makes
less sense is always more subtle.
Sleep hygiene disrupted by a car wreck you
didn’t see. The grocery store lost power,
and the freezers froze even deeper.
Where in space are we or could we be?
I watered the garden
until a few dozen birds flew out.
