To the Guy Up There

Chris Martinho, Jr.

You were there–
but where?
I can’t see you,
so are you there?
I need you.
Your arms around me
is all I ask.
I am mad; I am sad.
Are you listening?
Mad! Sad!
Don’t just sit there.
Don’t you love me?
Well, that’s what it says
in your word.
So “The End”
or “Amen”
or something like that.
