a taxonomy of prayers

Moravian star
memorized protection
shared meal
disowned illnesses
petty athletic boasts
self-righteous wars

sympathetic etiquette
the pious about the doomed
traveler's anxiety
terrifying darkness
proclaimed R.I.P.

naked innocence
grandiose ambition
bewildering grief
political alliance
contrived assurance

indescribable awe, gratitude
lightning strikes thrice
birds, deer, and dragonflies
calm mind, sweat work
read heart

singing 4 sake Reds, unsucking fat
cherished without pretension
dynamic intention (not floppy hope)
holographically intense
whispering Wind, Thunder
