Checks And Imbalances

I check the front page
for sightings
of Jesus.
I check the classifieds
for directions from the Lord.

I never miss the weather;
there's words inside the thunder
crashing like a deadbolt -
six times -
to lock a door.

For Kerry's prompt (superstition) at Real Toads

Perfection. I love it.

Perhaps the answer lies in the places we never look.

Sylvia K said...

Perfection indeed!! No one says it better!

Six times you said.. yes they need to counted.. dead-bolt or you're dead.

Myrna R. said...

Yes. Sometimes we look in the wrong places for answers. Love this.

Sorry, Jesus was on my toast.

I love the way thunder transforms in this.

We're funny creatures for all our evolution.

And perhaps if we stopped looking outside for answers (and confirmations) ((those checks and imbalances)) and instead looked within, superstition would become just plain damn healthy ambivalence. But hey! Knock three times in case I pissed off St. Michael.

As soon as I read "sightings of Jesus" I thought about toast.

I know, I'm a terrible person. *sigh*
