The Clever People in My Bedroom

When Jesus came to dinner
He was perfect. He complimented me
on my silverware pattern
although He didn’t seem to notice
I’d put the good china out.
Later, over coffee and cake
He admitted that He hadn’t been following politics too much
had been absorbed in tracking weather patterns
bird migrations
global things.
“If it’s on television, I probably
haven’t seen it,” He explained.
