[Lent: day 5/40]

Signs & Miracles
-Ron Koertge

"If you exist," I said.  "Send me
a pony."

Immediately Jesus appeared
in my bedroom.

I get off my knees.  "You heard
my prayer!"

He quoted Himself: "Except ye
see signs and miracles, you will
not believe."

"Be reasonable, Jesus.  It's hard
to just take Your word for it."

"But I'm here.  In your bedroom.
Isn't that enough?"

"So is the pony outside?"
from Sweet Jesus: Poems About the Ultimate Icon (ed. Nick Carbó and Denise Duhamel) p. 3.
