Let It Come More Easily Than That
Bethany Reid

If you want to have peace,
don’t imagine it a mountain lake
revealing itself only to airplanes
and the most intrepid of hikers.

Let it come more easily than that.
Fill a glass at your kitchen tap
and give thanks. As you drink,
offer a prayer for those who thirst.
