Traveler’s Prayer and a poem

Traveler’s Prayers
by Rebecca Buchanan

Hermes and Hekate
Guide my steps

Hermes and Hekate
Watch over me on my journey
Beginning to end

* * * *

by Rebecca Buchanan

three hours into a seventeen hour drive
and the check engine light comes on
two thousand dollars to fix this problem
and I’m pissed
but not Hermes
he’s a god who likes to fuck with people
the curveball
the wrench in the works
that’s Hermes
laughing at how we complain and whine and stress
we little mortals
who can’t see the whole thing is a game
