Prayer Loops

I once wrote a prayer down

hoping it would work forever

that somehow the letters on the page

would repeat their message in a loop

even if I stop.

I can hear the book sometimes

like the last phone in a condemned office building

playing its quiet modem dirge to the asbestos walls

until the demolition crew arrive.
