The Last Two Questions
By Michael Power - Welland, Ontario, Canada - 12 February 2016
Rosary and remote, beads and buttons,
the worry work of my thumbs,
lie next to each other on my table
like worn-out celibate lovers.
One a circle of meditation,
a mortuary of remembered words and phrases.
The other a mindless numerology
producing fake icons on a false altar screen.
When to pray to my distant God?
When to stare at digital creatures?
