the poetry of steven harz / “Anno Domini (A.D.)”

car keys

Anno Domini (A.D.)

 

In the beginning I was a void

but now

you have become the light

allowing me

to find my missing parts

(and car keys)

now I want so badly to recite to you

our future from memory

and I know that if I lean into you,

and try very hard

and lie a little

to my heart and your ears

it could sound

like The Bible

(minus miracles)

with the part before you

fat with floods and famine

and the part since

full of hope and belief

while skipping over

the final chapter

in an attempt

to avoid

the rapture

 

 

This poem originally appeared in my book, “Gas Station Road Map” – available at Amazon in paperback and eBook.
