i was asked today
if i was ready
to accept someone
else’s savior, that
i’d be doomed
if i didn’t
and that they’d
pray for me,
that i’d see
the world through
new glasses…

empty ones,
i thought

but i bit my
tongue

…if only i’d submit,
they implored
and offered
to pray some more
and I thanked them
for their concern
but no,
i wasn’t buying
religion today

or my usual,
either

just

a pack of smokes
