For years, I listened to their prattle
about secular humanism
and “the big picture”,
listened to their arguments about
how the holocaust certainly
suggests that God had died
or slipped into a new universe
hiding his head in shame
under storm clouds
or maybe developed dementia
and forgotten what he’d left on earth.
I chuckled patiently,
supporting the huffing and puffing
of philosophers when miracles appeared,
granting calm when it was not sought.
