God's Orphan

And He is
dead. I
realized.

It was like
the Cubs. In 1998,
when the Braves
swept them out
of the first round,

my heart
let go.
Thirty years
of loyalty
left. Gone.

Sudden, instant,
whole. I made
no effort. It just
happened.

So: there is
no God.
Sudden, instant,
whole.
He was
never there,
all this time.

It's a lonely
feeling. It just
happened. I
try to revive

Him, but it's
no use. I am
lonely without
Him.

Lonelier.
