Two Poems

by Carol Nelson

         The Chinese altar

         Trash picked on a winters day,

         Off the sidewalk, outside the restaurant,

         Surely dedicated,

         To the god

         Mono So Deium




         You are sick and I am old.

         Older than you will ever be.

         ... and I thought one day

         I might go back,

         To that place where you once spoke to me.

         And knock...and knock,

         Until I call you out.
