oh you.
you with the smile
the hands that see
the eyes that feel
the ears that know

God dumped you on my doorstep
with a note attached
“this will make you feel”
because He knows that’s what I need
He’s so darn clever.

and feel I did, feel I do
your nervous tick
the twitch of your fingers
the tap of your worn out shoes
resonate feeling unlike any I know
you’ve rendered me feeling-ful
and frankly, I don’t know what to do

why did He put you here?
I’ve never known God to be one of games
but then again I’ve never known God very well at all

surprise at my doorstep
heavy as a red wooden heart
was it your idea to knock?
