up close
you are anyone
and then even closer
no one

i sound like
my father

how long has this
been happening?

* *

image of the virgin mary appears on a factory wall in juarez, mexico

which god
do you pray to
when the baby
is born

what does he

what can he?

* *


walking through
february rain with
jonathon and
there is war

not mine
and not his and
he laughs as he
curls five tiny fingers
tight around
the sky

all any of us
is everything
