"God Has A Big Eraser"
said the sign at the Baptist church,
which surprised me a little,
since I didn't think a Big G
Baptist God would make many mistakes
but o.k., I figured
there might be some,
like if the Big G
really did create the Big W,
that might have been a mistake
you'd want to erase,
and AIDS probably wasn't
such a great idea,
and I wonder if
the level of desire
left in old men
was a miscalculation.
- Ralph Murre
