Jack-in-the-Pulpit

present
     for your presentation
          your wrapping
     green cloth      of any
               simple fabric

peaking for congress
     for the first
     calming breath

     (vulnerable / in breathing / in filling your lungs)

                              before the sermon

               & then

               the word of silence
               is passed
                    in turn
                         plant to plant
                              &
                         gnat to gnat


(so serene the lesson
the sun & silence)
