Rituals and Riddles

got a sort of theater going
God and I

                      [The clouds pool eerie

It starts to storm and
like a fool I egg it on
                     [I can imagine the smile you
                           wear when you know
                         you’ve already won]
lightning flickers, I’m beckoning____
ensuing chaos

& it Is largely chaos
spiraling from control
like a grown man persuaded
to unload his whole
                        My hair stands
                             on end just

                     waiting for the moment

when the power goes out
I’m still catching my breath
waiting for the cricket’s song
        the applause
