I didn't cry
but I couldn't keep
the lubrication in my eyes,
such precious water in a dry time,

when they prayed 
for the children
that the world 
will protect them

and all the
other people's children 
passed with their teachers 
along the aisle.

It felt I was a thread 
in a great soft quilt,
like the one adorning
the gathering space.
