inside a glacier
in search of connection
i placed both my hands
on a wall of ice
as if embracing it
and then pressed my forehead against it as well
until i could i feel the ice melt against my skin
and the water slowly dripped down my face
holy water i said
in the name of the father, and of the son
et spiritus sancti
i heard footsteps approaching me
and someone laughed
i turned around
i tried to explain what i just experienced to people i did not know
and knew how foolish i seemed to them
but i am a blessed fool
looking for god in all the seemingly wrong places
