For Marcella H, Who Wanted This Close To Her



Father,

hallowed be your name.

Your Kingdom come.


Our daily bread give us today.

And forgive our debts 
as we forgive our debtors.

And do not lead us to the test.


(scholarly retroversion of Matthew/Luke versions of The Lord's Prayer, in A Marginal Jew by John P. Meier, 292)
