I Want to Pray

In the hidden part thou shalt make me to know
wisdom. Psalm 51

That young man
Firing his Kalashnikov
Into the playground
Has been made to know
The hidden part.

Me, I want to pray.
I’m on my knees.
But all I am is screaming
I don’t know what for. Maybe
The best God can do is pay no mind.
