a lady is holding god’s obituary-

she painted it on a canvas of pain

with the crayons of his silence

she is saying;

“i’m not an artist

but i watched god die

in the tears of a little boy,

who was born with a cave

in his heart, to parents

who took a loan from love

and made him their collateral”

her heart begins to float

on her tears, she can’t say

many more words, but these:

“i’ve seen god die. that day,

he went swimming in the tears

of this little boy and the fun

drowned him.”
