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.
