it was amazing
bookshelves: nonfiction

Poems about God that manage to be both iconoclastic and reverent. God goes to beauty school, gets a dog, buys a couch from Pottery Barn, and wonders how the world as it is came into being from all that is in Him.

I’m not religious, but I liked these poems sort of because of that; this is not the God of hatred and religious wars, but a very human God, very simply expressed. The poems are often funny, but all have a more complex kernel to ponder. I like that.
