today a skylark sang my prayer and
my work is uncongenial and useless but even here
the same long lived prayer is now less

my son and I
through wind and rain
peeling grey paint
as we turn to leave
inside we find
a colossal Ultraman
Godzillas in a row
Naruto and his
my son’s eyes
I make small talk
she’s been in business
she goes on
the storm outside
I wonder how long
we hear on the news
without buying anything.
