A Child of God
Tap-tapping like drum beats
from a cautious
march, the boy's pale face
follows my steps
his cane meandering side
to side through the aisle, and
hummingbird fingers poke
at the shelves. He
listens to the crinkle of a
chin uplifted, grinning like
mom's proud of her
son, turned ten today and
during last Sunday's service.
