as God was finally leaving
this universe behind,
He turned and look back
(as He had zapped
Lot’s wife for doing),
raised His middle finger,
and disappeared forever.
i breathed a sigh of relief.
alone at last.
i smiled wanly at my lame joke,
then looked up
into that empty sky.
now what? i thought.
getting rid of God
was only a beginning.
now i was stuck
with making the big decisions.
no more “the Lord’s will”
or “waiting on the Spirit”.
it was now on me
to create the world
in my own image.
i decided to start
with a nice breakfast.
i’d think about it
over a short stack,
and coffee.
