Will God talk?
Can we get Him to confess?
We can't hold Him 
like an ordinary prisoner.
We can't interrogate Him,
and if we ask politely, 
will He answer?

We whisper our prayers, 
sweet desperate nothings--
He hears them, 
we know He hears,
but does He listen?

Does He lick our souls
like a dog a face?
Will He pat us ever so gently,
or give us that nudge we need?

He is at our shoulder, 
in front of our face,
breathing softly, softly
on our bared neck.

Do we wait
do we create?
