“This,” he said, bemused, “is my calling?”
“Well,” replied God, evenly,
“at least I didn’t call you collect.”


“Ah, yes!” he said confidently, “This is
my calling in life!” “Unusual,” puzzled
God, “as your line was always busy.”


“This” he proclaimed with cautious certainty,
“is my true calling.” God nodded affirmingly,
“Well, for now, it’s a good start.”

About poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Now, after ten years, I have returned home to my native Midwest. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
