SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE
(11/23/14)


to be able
to take my car
to a back boulevard
repair shop

when
most places
are closed

when
many folks
are in
church

and to have
the proprietor
tell me
around his cigarette

"$10"

when I ask
how much
to pull a nail
from a tire
then plug
the hole

is truly
a blessing

I need
profane people
and places
like these
on an otherwise
holy day

"all done"

he says
15 minutes
later

today
there's no
better
benediction
