Grand Alley Sky (NaPoWriMo Day 14)



Mother always said
that God
had his fun, too –

with the angels
was a favorite

How hard he
threw the ball, I
knew. Pins crashing
kept me up
for hours

and if I
squinted hard
enough, I could
see them
dancing with the
disco lights
just behind the curtain-clouds.

One day I’ll join
them in that grand
alley, see his
laughing face when
he bowls another

and forget my speech about all
those spoiled
He too knows

time flies when
you’re having
