Suburban Prayer
Daniel Berrigan

Grant us for grace
oppositions, stimyings
sand in our pet gears
a bubble in the cozy blood

Crowd our real estate
with the rag tag real, the world.
Marry us off, lonely girls
to Harlem and Asia.  This Lent
celebrate in the haunted house, the world.

From Daniel Berrigan, And the Risen Bread, Selected Poems, 1957–1997 (1998).
