A Prayer

May this day bring

a cold drink

some laughter

beside the ceviche truck

by the mercado

far away

from the bitching wife.

 

May this day bring

a poem

not even a good one.

A paycheck

not even a large one.

A song

somewhere

in my heart.

 

May this day bring

peace,

give me just a little piece

that’s all I ask

and like

change jingling in a homeless guy’s hand

I’ll dance ‘n smile

like a thief

stealing fire from a god,

like a night lasting all day long.

 

Amen, hallelujah and all that jazz.
