As an Editor,

I help you make your message clear.   

As a Poet, 

I share what I learn 

and wonder.    

As an Artist, I explore what begins where

my words end. 

As soap and water replace holy water,

let us bless them.

As we wash, 

let counting seconds

be holy too.

As celebrants wash their hands before a ritual,

let our hands summon us

to presence 

over and over and over and over again—

prayer wheels,

permanently attached at the wrists.

—From Corona, ver. 7/28/20
