The ATM of Peace

Talking, asking, requesting, desiring,

The requests fly into the ATM,

Sometimes written, other times recited in groups,

The prayers go out,

Each with an RSVP.


Who am I cheating at this bank of unlimited grace?

I can’t trick God so what is going on here?

If I ask reward is that really communication?

Is that a prayer?

Or me encircling my ego?


The latter methinks.

Real prayer asks for nothing.
