If God was a writer
I think He'd side step Literature--
at least I hope that's His plan.
I hope he doesn't write just to write,
to show off the beautiful sad of life,
created to make us cry at the end—
with tearful thanks for the cathartic release.
I'd like to think that He writes like I read,
having had enough of the hurting,
skimming it in favor of meaning
in the before and the after,
jumping to new beginnings
when all the foreshadowing said it was over—
Now that's a twist.
