how to find god by Elias Andrevn


how to find god

sunday. in the scabs on mother’s knees.
where she plants mourning that sprouts
in the wrinkles of her skin.
bridges. fragile chinas learning to paint colours.

& vibrate in quiet hues
from the broken shards of spilled tears.

pray. how can you find god
in the shadows of a broken boy.

can you not see
he’s been burnt by his mother’s prayers?
