i don’t know
who it’s calling
but
the red tail’s hacksaw cry
above the stubbled field
could be for me
so i look up
into
the glaring afternoon sky
just in case
it’s true.

what i find
unconvincing
is as unsettling
to me
as faith.
after all
what if there was
absolutely
no one left
who believed
in god?
