An Atheist Thinks Of God Thinking

Posted to Poetry




In the distant corners of creation,
Miles from the thought of a star,
I suppose God
Might have leaned upon his wooden
Crutch
And smiled from ear to ear and thought:

‘How happy they might be in their numbers
If they smiled from ear to ear like me.
But I designed them in my slumber,
My eyes too closed to see.’
