prayer: winter ’82*
brian vanderlip

Lost, dear Lord,
trying to love
new fashions,
one-eyed psychiatrists,
mirrored views, and
the sleek luster-
Mercedes-Benz.

God grant me
religious preoccupations.

Reach me, Lord,
hold and
keep me.


*from What Happens to Memory, The Netherlandic Press, Canada, 1989
