pt. IV: Praying
she lifts herself with elegance. fingers roll like waves. a shadow slinking under covers. her mouth, her throat, a tunnel to a gathering. a sinister congregation. an awkward mass.
whispering a prayer for the mouth.
a prayer for all her guests and the airplanes and the tunnels that get them where they need to be!
then they say a prayer to me. to me!
a prayer of thanks for bringing them all together.
