Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

lottery

April 6, 2015

it’s a terrible reason to believe in God
terribly selfish
but there it is

and here it is
again
for the third time

a two-page letter
Dear Parent/Guardian
understated in its tidal effects

your child has been chosen
by lottery
to attend the school of your dreams

my detente with the Almighty
washes away
two pages at a time
