Graham, Did You See the Swans?

Graham, I saw seven swans flying over the delta yesterday. I thought of you. Of our bird watching drives and slurpees in Burlington. I can’t help thinking the fact that there was seven would have just pissed you off, because it was clear that God was referencing a Sufjan Stevens album.

I read somewhere that Illinoise was the second best album of this decade. Did you know that? I don’t understand why you hate the artist who created the second best album of the decade, and apparently even God likes Sufjan (and you know what a music snob he is).

I know, I know—“Jesus loves him, so I don’t have too.” But maybe you could try.

Graham, the swans were flying south; I wonder if you saw them.
