Let Us Prey

The thing about saying grace is that anyone can do it-anyone.

I’ve learned prayers

to protect me from the dead

to chase away evil

to forgive my sins

I’ve said grace

over meals

before journeys

even the one I take before I sleep.


I sang those words

raged those words


past gritted teeth

through my darkness

ever single day.


So who will stand over me

after I’ve died

and ask that I sleep


God let it be


and that I never walk again.
