public service

In muddy puddles it has marched,
just as much as in loving sunshine.
Can we even recognize its virgin
form underneath uneven layers
of living? Ineffectual hands clutch
on to ancient and empty promises
(promise me now?) with a desperation
that grows stronger every year.
Stand with your face to the sky
and pray – but – not for me.
