circumventing the inevitable

round and round
down cattails
between pillows
tossed into piles

i avoid
the very subject
of breathing

and regret everything
i’ve ever done and
still, regret nothing

what is regret? it is doubt
in the fantasy that there’s
no automatic consequence
to my sin

what is sin? it is the absence
of God, and where is that?
where can you go to escape
that shadow? Mars most likely.

we are there now,
popping snapshots
of ancient riverbeds and
mountains and valleys
in an asphyxiated atmosphere

perhaps Everyone makes mistakes.

    We can’t help it. But we are forgiven. Thank’s for that God. After all, when all is said and done, God takes very good thing we have ever done and looks at that. Nice to think about.
