man with gray beard: “I believe in God.”
woman with red hat: “Really? I don’t know. I’m not sure. I mean, God?”
man with gray beard: “Well, you know, life is so fucked up. Nothing makes sense. There’s no justice. Life is so unfair.”
woman with red hat: “Yeah, exactly. So how the hell do you believe in God? I mean, God doesn’t make sense.”
man with gray beard: “I know! I know! The existence of God makes no sense at all. But, if there is a God, then everything else makes sense. I mean, if there’s a God, at least one huge question is answered.”
woman with red hat: “Huh? What the fuck are you talking about? What huge question is answered by the existence of God?”
man with gray beard: “You know - ‘why’?”
woman with red hat: “What?”
man with gray beard: “No. ‘Why’. ‘Why’ can be answered by ‘God has a reason for everything’.”
woman with red hat: “YOU make no sense!”
man with gray beard: “Well, I’d rather believe in a God that makes no sense and then have everything else make sense because of God than have nothing make sense at all.”
woman with red hat: “Makes sense…”
man with gray beard: “I don’t know. Maybe.”
woman with red hat: “I’m starving. Want to go to Olive Garden?”
man with gray beard: “Sure. Let me give Jack a call and see if he wants to come along.”
dinner is done
roads are wet and slick
so it’s slow going
and speed with caution is the trick.
we drive on ahead
into thick fog that blinds us
while the road winds us
round and down the mountainside.
we see the valley flooding.
the river breaks its banks.
when we arrive safely
we give thanks.
soon the rain slows then
comes to an end.
a strong wind takes the clouds away.
when the sun appears
to calm our fears
we decide to stay.
the river waters recede.
earth receives what she needs.
a storm keeps you inside where
you can listen to the rage from a place
you stay sheltered within
while winds rip round the place
in which you hide.
knowing the fierce and mighty winds
may tear away the protection
you must pretend to trust,
you let your ears hear your mind’s whispers
and comfort yourself with those lies.
pressed against me,
holding me tightly,
squeezing the breath from my body,
trying to become a part of me,
to mix our flesh together as one,
instead you kill me
with your desperate longing.
you cannot ever never be alone.
we are all only one,
and now I am no longer at all.
