Angry at God
for not answering
15,000 prayers he calls
to tell me he won’t
pray a 15,001st

His is the odd
notion that God
brokers heavenly deals
from a luxury box
among the stars

The Armani man
put it all on the line
The power`self in trade
for the trophy`wife
buffed in silicone

Divinely spurned
all bets are now off
She can go to hell!
And so can God!


About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
