THREE MORE POEMS MORE

LUCKY STIFFS

Are the faithful
Dead better positioned
To be saved
Than the rest
Of earth’s seekers?
Even their God
Can’t help being
What He is.

MIXED SIGNALS

Some say God plays hardball.
Some say God plays softball.
Some say God plays scorekeeper.
Some say God plays spectator.

Some say None of the above.
Some say All of the above.
What say you, reader?
Sorry I can’t decide for you.

I’m just the poet.

MAYBE IT’S JUST ME

I believe the world is divided into two camps –
people who are introspective and those who aren’t.
–Oscar Hijuelos, Pulitzer Prize novelist

A certain poet believes that
“people who are introspective”
are also divided into two camps –
though he confesses he has yet
to see two people in one of them.
