Arts & Crafts

The pandemic
forces me to creative projects.

I think I will build
a nondenominational altar.

Lord knows individuals
speak a thousand prayers per day.

Lord knows we need
to be saved from our own foolishness.

The altar does not mind
if children bring in playful hands

their dolls or toy soldiers
to the prayer sessions.

The altar has a basin
designed to collect people’s tears.

It does not matter
if your eyes are open or closed.

The basin does not make the tears holy.
That occurs during the act of crying.
