First church

of my first church,

the tomato

 

in my eye,

I blink to give

you the salt

 

you need. I cry,

because that red

curtain I saw

 

never swung open

& when the sun sets

I see no father

 

reaching down

to cradle

& halt your trade.

 

I trust the trucks

moving through

the grain lines.

 

I know what it means

when they drive

without lights on.
