morning sacrifice—
how one feather in the sand
appeases the gods

Temple Precincts


A flabby old priest,
recumbent in the temple,
leers as pilgrims pray.
~~ ~~ ~~
An indignant priest
shoves aside the woman’s gift
with abusive shouts.
~~ ~~ ~~
stench of holiness
rising in clouds of incense—
morning sacrifice
