Infinite possibilities

Comments Off

[Today’s run:  nada]

Some people say that there
is an alternate universe where
King Hezekiah did not turn
his face to the wall and cry.

In another place the Jews all died
as victims of a great genocide
because Esther was not chosen
queen of Persia.

Daniel was a lion’s snack; 
Abednego a pile of ash;
baby Moses thrown
into the Nile.

Adam and Eve avoided sin,
the serpent still talks with them,
lion and lamb both lunch
upon the grass.

And finally there must be a place
where God did not choose to make
and everything is still a formless,
whirling, empty void.
