Praying with Fringes 12/08/2016 – roll it on down the road

from Cove
Jane Mead

If you’ve got something that stands
for prayer, roll it on down the road
in my direction—I’ll be standing

at the rim of the patient and organized
forest, to the left of a quaking aspen.
I’ll be scanning the horizon for a smudge

of myself. Roll it on down—
I like to watch things wobble.
