Sacramental Acts

An afternoon beer in the shower
The written prayers of a Serbian bishop
Eating Mexican food alone at the market
Chopsticks and noodles
A prayer beneath a canopy of trees
Contemplating a woman’s lips
Contemplating her kiss
Waking to the rain on your window
Writing a poem for a black widow
These are the sacramental acts
For the simple and holy essence of your life.
