Witness Protection Plan

She’s a Jehovah’s Witness they say,

Always speaking in mysterium

I’ll turn the conversation toward rainbows and power dreams

Then she’ll wind it back to

Old Jehovah the grey beard

I’ll ask something like,

“Did you see the double rainbow on Earth Day?"

And she’ll reply with absolute certainly,

“I know who painted it and what type of brush he used.”

She’s attracted to nature and power lines

The other day I saw a photo of her with three

power strings reaching to the sky like a

Cherub strumming cool chords.

I don’t want to be closed-minded –

I wish that she and I could just have a regular conversation

Without her feeling like Jehovah is witnessing everything.
