To Kill a Light

Would I kill a light to light up a fire? To create a pyre that burns my wishes in the night air, blowing smoke into the face of god so that he knows I am here. A religious man for an hour, when there are twenty four hours in a day. A sad thought is considered upon sips of Russian vodka and American made beer. I stir thoughts and dreams together, they melt like ice cubes in my cup of life. Wishing for a cigarette to calm rivers of thoughts. I say rivers plural because there are too many to count. I pick one like a sailor picks his voyage and upon selection a choice is made. An adventure like a “choose your own adventure book” we once enjoyed as children. What will our story tell?

Jal ja,

  1. I don’t want to sound religious, but I believe we can know God and that this is the ultimate goal of life. It is unfortunate that the very religions that espouse this belief often deter us from knowing the God we profess to worship. “If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, I am nothing.”
