Paternoster

Our Father, now I lay me down

and count away the ceiling tiles,

and the dots in the tiles,

and the fan’s RPMs

(anything but sheep).

I know that somewhere above

my hovering prayer there exists

a stratosphere, an exosphere,

and beyond the spheres

                          emptiness.
