Erasing Flannery #5
Dear God, about hope:
It is so easy to say I hope
I am too lazy to despair
I would be so miserable
in the faith department
I have never felt
a positive force
but all my requests seem
to melt down to that supernatural
that does whatever it does.
My mind is in a little box.
There is very little air in my box.
Is there no getting around that?
Oh dear I want to write a novel
for the psychologists.
Let me get away & sweat for it.
