Prayer

          for Rachel Woodard

I listened heartfully, when wisdom
asked for my attention—
our words, sparse enough,
were generally traded
with playful mischief.

In the years since I saw your face last,
photographs have come to feel
something like prayers.

I miss, most of all,
the way your smile sounded.
