• Patti Creamer

god sits on the foot of my bed

alongside my bone-

weary betrothed. I levy

“will I be prosecuted?”

& she tells me that

god does not seek

retribution, god

seeks eight balls

and blue movies

and brainsickness

god seeks heads

through windows

and smashed china

and rolled-up dollar

bills in place of


she swears to me

on her own grave

that I am safe from

god’s wrath, but

she does not

mention her own
