prayer request card

I would like the church to pray for

pockmarks, or however A. feels
the arm S. lost in North Dakota
M. to get that fellowship, baby,
and let her be the first Black woman on the supreme court.

what’s eating ashley’s dad & ashley
might have too

my older brother, hope
he can get out
of bed today

I would like the church to pray

R’s kids are good

that everytime somebody in Oakland walks over
where the warehouse used to be
their body becomes possessed by the spirit
of one of those brilliant, queer lil weirdos
like a star or a strobe light

I would like the church,

probably, if it were a little more like a poetry class
or a lil dance party where everyones alive
& everyone finds stuff they thought they’d lost
& everyones on their way up to someplace
real nice
