This is where God took a dump,
Even as he walked off, amid
the raucous, not hearing the people
begging him to stay.
The rules had changed and the people had tossed the memo aside.
Scrambling to find it amongst the trash at their feet.
Forgetful. Pitiful. Sad people.
They opened up their eyes and in a moment of terror. Screaming. Banging on closed doors. Their smiles forgotten. They wailed into the echoing emptiness: “God has forgotten us!!”
In a bid to find someone to blame their terror on, they forgot that they had forgotten about themselves first.
That they’d lost themselves along the way. Leaving nothing behind.
