Approbations 683

—after Archie Shepp’s 'A Prayer'

Predicated on faithful fingers’
clawing ascended skin of air’s
scaly modification.
with voice of swollen child
from primitive hankering of
sedentary movement
flailing revolutions of
second hand’s
cured notion:
----------------------------time of timid occultation
hurried hands across eyes’
miniscule acronyms
respelling interpreted follies
--------------------------------------------------known by name and
bodily position
isolated by kneeling and
faith’s current alteration.
