praying on the Essequibo crossing

the men on the boat had reasons to pray

  1. we were crossing the essequibo in the rain by speed boat
  2. some couldnt swim, but most importantly at the moment
  3. the lady in the third row bra straps were about to snap free any second now

the metal clips were stretched to capacity and hanging on for dear life

the lady sensed the uncoming danger
the men bowed their heads
eyes wide open
dear gawd
as we traverse the other half of this river
may our fortunes be bountiful and bright
