Wheels for Feet: “I Asked God” (Poetry by Juan C.Diaz)

I Asked God



At thirteen I asked God if he could make me human

He complied by ripping the thin layer of innocence

That encompassed my heart and tossed it into

The fires of awareness that have been burning

Ever since the droplets of apple juice were

Sliding down the chins of Adam and Eve

God then took a pencil and drew a door

On the surface of my heart which caused

It to bleed a little He then told me

To make sure to open that door

When my first love came knocking

Because as soon as she enters my

Heart a vast and beautiful kingdom will

Be created in its chambers letting me

Know that I am human
