MEN PRAYING AROUND A FIRE

Fire-Praying-Mantis-33890

Men stand in a circle turned inward to a fire.

The backs of our heads make a wall.

Our faces are doors shut against the possibility of rain.

Eyes are leaded panes of glass in which fires crouch.

We pray that the world is more than a carnival of atoms.

Breathe in the smoke of our own selves burning.

Hold up empty hands asking you to make them

emptier.
