TEXTING GOD

              cc to my husband

Put me beside THAT one, just as you
put us, nightly--side by side psychic 
sidecars, as unlikely a coupling 
hitched to your engine as any, chugging 
in the long haul, for better or worse 
as the contract read, and we said Yes,
more or less honoring the rules, 
no worse than any others. 

No ashes, please, but let the knife
on the mortician's table take spleen, 
liver, the bean-shaped efficacy of kidneys, 
and the worn out heart (so many times 
broken) to tell the tale-- those
important organs that kept me running 
toward good destination: to join you, 
husband, in an embrace of bones.
