1 Poem by Jeff Bagato

Prayers of the Day

I forgot my work
and have no choice but to walk
on the beach
praying with the white foam
work will never return;

but you too are in the car,
and you must return
or there is no beach,
no foam

and the prayer—
a footprint in the sand—
like work—

as with most people,
my prayers substitute for will,
and are mostly
bad decisions
