I’m Hanging Out with God Tonight!

by Nicholas “The Bard” Andrea

I came home from a long, hard day of work
desiring a simple, warm presence by my side
a soft touch, a sweet voice;

but the lady had other plans –
and I was left alone

but not alone
for, I’ll be hanging out with God tonight;

I’m always hanging out with God, tonight,
though, so easy to forget when that
gorgeous damsel sits by my side
crooning sweet nothings in this ego’s ear;

but, what for
can I depend on another human being –

that when chose to marry you, Enana (the “I” within the I)
I committed to accepting this
just right here, just right now

this

as the bread of life, trusting it is
just what I need, whatever its flavor
despite my propensity to repulse it
or savor;

I may have no successful relating
with that gorgeous lady I call “my partner”
unless this I understand –

that I’m hanging out with God tonight!
