A World Lost

A wagon wheel light

(a move prop abandoned
in the town with a Biblical name)

Tossed dim light onto burlap curtains

(salvaged from the basement
of Holy Family Church)

Competed with votive candles

(reflected off plastic tablecloths
as white as sacraments)

Lit two front-row priests

(and heard “Born to be Wild”
played on a mandolin.)

Nazareth, Texas
1999
