Ganesha’s Ear

Ganesha's Ear

Austin, TX

My Ganesha. He hears me, he holds me, he rallies me.

On my stoop, a concrete deity stands,
his presence an obstacle to none:
Jehovah’s Witnesses do not retreat,
nor Baptists, Christians, Jews.

He is unrecognizable, remote, and
graciously invisible. An errant weed is his umbrella;
shifting stones his bed.
His patience is my sustenance.
