Community Church

by Farasi

He comes an hour early to sit in the back
While the organist practices.
Crutches propped beside him he raises a hand
When she turns. She shifts to hymns that soothe
And keep him sitting until the urge to smoke
Lifts him to his feet and out to the lot
Where his puff greet passers as if saying,
"And also with you.".
