This week we’re serving up a new poem by Melissa Broder. Broder is the author of two collections of poems, most recently Meat Heart. Poems appear or are forthcoming in Guernica, Redivider, Court Green, Drunken Boat, Barrelhouse, The Awl, et al. She edits La Petite Zine.
One night, god and I had a really good time together. The next day I felt like god was just gone. It seemed cruel that god would abscond after our magic night together. So I wrote this poem. Of course, god hadn’t gone anywhere. Where can god go? It was probably me who left.
