prayer of the ruby woman

Help me be
more rosy red,
more beaded,
more silvercast,
more cinnamon-sprinkled.
Not “sweet,”
not sour.
Just this side
of optimistic.
I see the truth,
but help me believe
in the best truth.
Help me see
my faith again.
My faith in all
the beige believers
and weeping whinypants,
in all the cruelty innovators
and gun developers.
I am just one woman
but I know the faith of one
is strong as seven giants.

I just need
the blank
gray
whispering
hole
to close.
