The Prayers of the People

The votives are lit, the prayers of the saints:
for Eloise, for Mary, for Dave who broke his hip,
for Ernesto who got the job...

A breeze billows a curtain

and the sanctuary is ablaze.

The smoke of the incense,

together with the prayers of the people,
God’s holy people,
went up before God.
