Singing Hosanna

by m. e. roach

 

we gather, lift our hands, and lie

back and forth

up and down

merry-go-round

singing hosanna.

 

all our plastic faces

khaki pants

shiny shoes

skirts past the knee

singing hosanna

 

never close enough

to broken

never close enough to believe

that hosanna means

save us
