In God’s Attic Apartment, A Poem


Hey guys, all six of you who regularly read this blog and say just enough nice things to make me write another, this is for you. Underneath this unnecessarily boring introduction is a poem I wrote and thought I’d share. Now, I usually hate my poetry, but this one is just funny enough and has just enough irreverence toward religion and holy things that I kind of like it. If you enjoy it, you are probably going to see me in Hell, which is cool because the Devil prefers red solo cups, and solo cups don’t shatter.

 

In God’s Attic Apartment

 

So I’m just hanging out

in God’s attic apartment,

and I drop a glass. A nice one.

 

Crystal. A gift from his favorite Pope,

probably. And I say, “Ah, hell.”

but I’m thinking Hell, you know,

the hot place for people who shatter

God’s stemware and cuss in his apartment.

 

And the Creator, the Creator just laughs

and says, “Broom’s in the pantry, my child,”

and just like always, He hangs out

while I do all the work.

About charliegreenberry

I grew up in the wilds of New Mexico in a strange combination of free and restricted. Now, as I stumble unwillingly into adulthood, I find memories resurfacing. So I dust them off, sand them, slap on a coat of paint and display them with the hopes that at some point they'll make sense and pull the room together. The blog is a space for writing, for sharing, someday sharing without worrying about who is reading it, and a place to practice. Virginia Woolf said, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Well, here's to having a room at least.
