Things Possible in the New Earth #9

My friend, I’ll see you at the party. And you’ll be at peace – while we share baguettes and a cab sav far older than the former things (that includes glaciers, the Great Pyramids and cholera), there’ll be no talk of coping mechanisms and social contracts, though you might remember out loud that when the doubt fell away it was a little like God touched your hip – a galvanizing painful jolt to end the dogged struggle, the long limp away in the dark until dawn. But the blessing was worth every second, you’ll say. And both of us will be honestly fluent in the jargon of praise.
