Daily Mass

Not so much reserved,
but gravitational –
this couple near the third fall,
that one near Pilate’s bolt.

On Mary’s side,
I nestle between pivots:
the Cyrene crucifer and
Veronica’s boon.

My pivot is presence – I’m there.
Nodding, nodding, I
never assist, only
posture and perceive.

At Communion, I approach
and return – back to my place.

Attendance is sparse again today.
