You can pray for good weather tomorrow, but
Tomorrow’s weather is already set.
The weatherman may be wrong to say it will rain, but
Whether or not it will rain has already been set
By the pressure in the air and the moisture and
That butterfly that so fiercely beat its wings in Columbia
Last February when the open beak of a sparrow appeared out of nowhere.
The only question that remains, the one on which our salvation
Depends, is whether the weather can be changed
By any means at all at any point between now
And the end. Go ahead and pray.
