An Ordinary Prayer.
October 12, 2008


give me a boring life, I pray

with steady suns and occasional rains

straightened out, life’s twists and turns

hum-drum days and worlds of words

egg drop soup and Harry Potter

desert breezes and grass for horses.

let me be bored, grumble and complain

visit upon me that luxury,

with pots unstirred and nothing out of the ordinary

a few barking dogs barking at eternity

and the morning star always on time.
