Seventh Day Sonnet

by John Kendall Hawkins


God must have faltered on the Seventh day

like some old man looking in the rye glass

for the Big Bang he left behind. No way

these time-twisted events have come to pass.

Old now, long past his days of electric

persuasion, just another sh*t-kicker,

a soup├žon Andy Warhol eccentric,

stuck on his rocker with a bad ticker.

Why have you forsaken me? day and night,

like a trippy echo down the hallway

of an opium parlor. He can't fight

the cathedral high he feels, hears Jahveh.

Memory is a lapsed confessional

you never leave. See a professional.
