Me and God

-This was in last years Jeopardy magazine, that made me very very happy. Soon enough, I'll start posting more new material.

When I pray, me and God go hiking
we run up mountains
skip rocks
climb trees
and stare off into space

When I pray, we play
we have homerun derbies
create small towns with mud and rocks
we get dirty and drink juice boxes
me and God, we laugh

When I pray, I drown
the weight of what I don't understand
pushes into my lungs
flailing stops
and strong hands take hold

When I pray, God walks with me
we sing country songs
take pictures and frequent detours

When I pray, God talks plain
uses small words
short sentences
His face is expressive
