Default The Finch Pool


The Finch Pool

The storm was a fact, but..
Later, after the fact, there was talk
Talk of God's larger plan
God planned the bird bath in my living room?
I wish He'd planned on bringing it through the door
Rather than the ceiling.
My father spoke of larger plans
The Big Picture, he called it.
On the ship, even on the landing craft, it was God's plan
On the beach?
Eisenhower's.
I have no plan at all
but to slake the thirst of birds.

Default Let's Talk About God

Very charming! I enjoyed it.

: = )

When talk turns to the deity I always rebel at the idea God must be portrayed as a male.

This tradition was a huge burden for me growing up in a Christian household. After all, the Christian god (a male) was executed at something like age 30. Is this what's required of me...this level of sacrifice...just because I was born with a dick?

I mean, why couldn't God have been female, so my sisters (I have two) would suffer by comparison as well? Why isn't their gender up on the cross with mine?

Girls get off easy in a country where most of the churches are Christian and the god-role is thrust almost exclusively on the not-yet-fully-formed shoulders of questioning, serious young boys.

Ownershp of a penis carries a huge responsibility. Some huger than others.
