You’d expect him to make himself known,
to appear at our party, you might say,
if God is really out there.
He wouldn’t travel the cosmos incognito.
And if he is at all good,
interested in our questions and needs,
for sure he’d step out of
the shadows, identify himself
and share his strategy for a better life.
Wouldn’t he have one, after all
if he were God?
Perhaps that’s why religions
of all major name brands
have always figured
God would somehow let us in on his secrets.
You’d just expect him to.
Maybe he would write a book.
