The unforgiven and the unreturned.

i was just trying to read a book in a park
when a woman with a gold tooth approached
to tell me how much Jesus loves me

i could feel her eyes on the length of my shorts
and my thighs and i knew she didn’t believe it herself
even as she said it

it’s okay, though
if he loves everyone indiscriminately
i’m afraid it’s unrequited
