making small talk.
article by
cl kirby

the last time 
you spoke to god
he sounded busy

you told him 
no problem
you understood

you told him
let’s get together sometime soon

he said of course
sure definitely 
that sounded really fun

but you haven’t heard 
from him since.

for you,
god has always been
the type of friend
that asks 
how you are doing 
but, were he to be honest,
doesn’t really care.
