The faith of hounds

Church bells ring at 9 o’clock
People called to pews
From aerial view,
crawling ants
disappear into squares
Old hound howls out
low-oh-only
low-oh-only
low-oh-only me
and stops when the bells do
a prayer in her tail

    I hear those bells that try to influence every sound wave, 5 times a day they clang their way. The rest of the time, I hear their silence.
