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


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?
