I saw this car's hand letter sign in its back window yesterday: ATTENDING CHURCH. Funny, it appeared to be parked. And I'm surprised this car attends church at all unless it's saying that under this starlit sky whatever/wherever we are, we are sacred and always attending church.
Thank you to the editor of Marin Poetry Center Anthology VI for first publishing this poem.
