'So, the problem that I have with You'i said to him out on the green drenched porchout in the morning grey, the drizzle about to give way,'I just don't trust You'.'an old conversation,' He replied.i ignore him, which isn't easy when Hislight is in my eyes.'We were on a roll, we were and the worldwas turning and blistering in the darkand the spark of it, the ember was about toignite something wild and big and- here,pass me that cigarette- now thewhole dam thing isdoing that thing it does when youdecide to fuck with the plan in favor of my spiritual development, a lesson, ormy sense of who i am .''You throw the whole thing down the pipes and then You ask me to come up with somethingcreative, quirky, silly... don't sit there and smirkat me when i am mad.seriously sometimes You act justlike a man (which we both know Youaren't.)'He takes my hand. The day is stretching on ahead like agloomy endless highway that i dreadno rest stations and no trees. The hum of soul mated bliss that hiss of light and heat is so far removed I haveto reach deepinside to find some reasonto get up in the morning out of the hibernationof my bed, avoiding the restless clatter inmy head and i hurt. everywhere all the timeI thought we had a plan and this one wasn't minei can assure you.and i am mad.'so', He says, stroking the dog's headand drawing deeply on his cigarette.

Although an atheist and ex-smoker (or is that ex-believer and ex-smoker) and of the male gender, I still feel I can identify with this poem, I can see myself on that porch. I love how you go from "I don't trust you" to not trusting yourself, the divinity intrinsic to each of us. That gesture of affection when he/she/it moves the hair from your cheek, preciosa poema.

Wouldn't it be nice if god would cut to the chase and say all this? Wonderful. I loved his question: When did you decide to quit? Could go in so many directions.

it does often strike me as curious the She wnat what She wants and doesn't seem to have a plan or care how the harmony is achieved - "I might / show a way / a truth, a light, I never / yank the rug, its all there in your hand." - excellent, sarita
