Man Makes Plans

man makes plans

and god laughs.

man makes plans

and paper planes,

and dinners, and dating profiles -

man makes a house from the ground up.

god, she tends to the house.

blows warm summer wind through the curtains,

taps rain on the tin roof,

brings the local cat by in the evenings,

brings life to the garden,

and casts a tornado when she feels cheated.

god, she is the plans lost

as much as she is the laughter.

man makes plans

the way he makes stories from the smoke

that rises from the campfire,

the way he makes shapes out of starlight.

she leaves the campfire untended,

lets the forest burn to ash,

brings down the heavens

and asks us to start anew.
