direction of prayer

You tell me it is a sign of respect
the bend of the men's knees over colorful rugs
with gold thread, blue, red and green

to bend in prayer then find your quiet
it is a sign of peace
how many times do we realize
we are faithful, if we are, truly found

you tell me it is a sign of respect
that the men let her watch how prayer
works its way and she, faithless,
you speak and I think of warm people

on softened prayer rugs and faraway lands
