Shapeshifter god

God shows himself in mysterious ways

Sometimes he’s Louis Armstrong on the radio on your way home from work

Sometimes he’s an owl-shaped tealight candle holder, small and gray

That way when you turn off all the bedroom lights

his face flickers in haunting shadow

Actually he’s a million different solitary birds

presenting to each of us one by one

And he sings too

Did you know that?

I actually read that somewhere…

That if indeed in the beginning was the Word

It was probably a sung word
