What if I Believe – by MONICA FLEGG

What If I Believe?

 

What if dogs didn’t shed

and house guests didn’t talk?

 

What if coffee came from faucets

and book’s characters edited

themselves

one at a time so that

the story became narrative evolution

with the author as merely a cameo,

 

but the essential cameo–

would that be like God and free will?

 

What if characters asked the cameo

to help them edit because

they trusted that cameo author

to do a better job with it.

 

What if that decision

made a better book

or a kinder character or

bridged a gap with grace,

or gave life?

 

What if I believe that cameo

author can do just that if I

give him back the pen.

 

What if I believe?
