To happenstance the glory

for my grandchildren

the hoped for –
rosaried, novenaed
and otherwise devoutly prayed for –
so they engrave
their thankyous
in marble
for their local

but if there were
even postagestamp-size ex-votos
for each unanswered daily prayer
every wall of every edifice
ever built by man
could not contain them all

and when the baby
relapses –
will that also be
at the whim of their god?

no racism intended
but that would make
the almighty imagined diety
an indian-giver.
