Ephemerality

“…But He loves you.”
-GEORGE CARLIN

i quit being an atheist
because it required more
conviction than i was willing
to commit

anyway it makes perfect sense
that God, lover of all men,

who made us in His image, will,
with minimal prompting,

plunge certain of us into a lake of fire

for all eternity, for surely you
have been willing to do the
same to at least one love,

possibly more,

and i am quite sure that
many old loves would love

to watch me burn for ever
and ever, the mere thought
enough to warm them

on the coldest, loneliest night;

probably some current ones,
too.
