Major disclaimer: God is not Rod Dreher

But here’s the thing:

When I think of the divine, I do not imagine
That she exhausts herself in meeting
all our incessant efforts,
short-sighted prayers, with
correction.

I don't imagine wisdom whispers:
But actually
Here’s where you’re wrong

Whatever God is, he’s not a sneer.
Everyone’s a critic; God only creates

And doesn’t bemoan categories—
Straight white men

Men

Straights


God is something else,
my grandma‘d say

God is the one who says:
This is mine
And this
Mine
Mine
Mine
Mine

All of it:
Science,
History,
Your lover and your cat

God is the one who claims it all
—even death—without fear, making all of it an image of himself,
drawing all things to all,
til God in-all-ed is all.
