I Want to Pray

by
 In the hidden part thou shalt make me to know
 wisdom.
Psalm 51 That young man firing his Kalashnikov into the playground has been made to know the hidden part.
Me, I want to pray.
I’m on my knees.
But all I am is screaming I don’t know what for.
Maybe the best God can do is pay no mind.
