Secret Conversations

Happen regularly

In this empty cell

Prior to consciousness

Often involving


Bargains or comfort

With children

“May you be safer than I,

if I can manage it.”

With myself

“May I be absolved

by my daily duties,

keeping the surfaces clean.”

With a God

As I drift

“May you grant

peace or grace,


complete belief

is one infraction

I cannot commit.”
