Posture

Cross traced across forehead
upon lips,
at the breast.
Head collapses.
My meagre gesture
for such great a love.

A whispered Amen loiters
waiting to respond.

These respectful acts,
these physical prayers
rhythmically renewing brittle words
until every sinew cries to you
in a living liturgy
