We Are All In Jesus’ Kitchen

all around you there are sinners
loading chemicals and things
up their dry cracks
cramming things
into their mouths
and playing the lottery
in their hopeful minds

yet

there are no such thing as angels

and

Jesus has eyes in your sock drawer
and at night he makes sounds
and you think it’s just
the house settling or
the humming of distant generators

yet it’s him
he’s there
crinkled up in the plastic bags
above the washer and dryer
watching and listening

he’s taking careful notes
regarding your credit score
your budgeting
your sex life
and your treatment of the animals-
even the ones chopped and frozen
in your freezer

you found heaven
in the squishy folds of a ripe
pomegranate
and Jesus saw that too

you almost made him smile

  1. Love it! Thank you for sharing.

    Would you like to join for some Coffee with Jesus?!

    • Thanks for the kind words. I am not a Christian, however, so hopefully Jesus will show some compassion on me and not spike my latte. I have a feeling he wouldn’t do such a thing.
