Rag Quilt, a poem by Michael Channing

Rag Quilt

by Michael Channing

thought he was praying
but he was scrolling
through his phone

thought she was angry
brooding in silence
but she was really praying

thought i was dying
flattening to silence
but i was just really lonely

thought i was scrolling
through twitter
but really i was just dying
