“Just beyond the bruised lips of consciousness.”

from Birds Again

~ Jim Harrison

We try to choose the fonts
of prayers that spew
beyond bruised lips
-to see which format will
be acceptable as an offering
(blindfolding consciousness)
-all the while forgetting the needful

-failing to delete poor memory banks
-allowing viruses run free
-running inappropriate programs
-and leaving soul-trash un-emptied

So… uploaded prayers
while appearing wonderful
always hit the firewall
-and all this because
we forget to do the needful
