A Shot in the Dark

We pray to keep

the demons at bay. 

Faith is what we

make of it–

the sacrifice and

the glory all come

with a price. 

The faithful might 

not be there to

pay up,

the bill more 

often falling 

to the shoulders

of loved ones. 

There are pleas 

for a salvation 

we cannot see. 

Perhaps we prefer 

the whimsical and

unburdened reality

over the unknown. 

We pray. 

But sometimes

the demons still

slip through.
