Sonnet: What If God Went Blind?

by John Kendall Hawkins


I lost my marbles when I took them for granite.

I was Deleuze'nal but now I'm not Saussure.

I looked for Lucy when I rolled my bones of lure,

took off my ape man suit in order to tan it.

When Nietzsche double-tapped Jesus, I almost flipped,

suddenly beheld a future of emptiness,

but such power vacuums are filled with the largesse

of devil-may-care hoodoos and the well e-quipped.

It's a lot to take in when you're shaking and baking

and you have full filled her quaking qu*m to the brim

with little deaths that sigh and little things that swim,

and the PC cops come with their for-god's-sake-ing.

I dunno. Number One thing on the Net is porn.

My luck: sunny sinny Salem elders reborn.
