The Truth About God
God's Christ Theory
God had no emotions but wished temporarily
to move in man's mind
as if He did: Christ.
Not passion but compassion.
What kind of withness would that be?
I have a friend named Jesus
His father and grandfather are called Jesus too.
They account me a fool with my questions about salvation.
They say they are saving to move to Los Angeles.

I was having a hard time reading Anne Carson's The Beauty of the Husband. It had no voice that I particularly wanted to or perhaps was able to hear. However, my friends suggested I try Glass, Irony and God, particularly "The Glass Essay" and then circle back around. It was good advice. "The Glass Essay" is excellent. I'm ready to circle back around.
