The grilled cheese sandwich

230newred.jpgMy beamish friends attract like flies on salty skin freshly dripping from the ocean waters my obdurate heart melts into forgiveness melts like a grilled cheese sandwich with the face of Jesus People line up around my block snapping pictures that beatify snapping like angry turtles snap snappity snap snap the flashes fade the toasted bread from golden brown to pale News trucks look for a fresh scoop deadlines approach like speeding bullets The hordes of Christians fight for their claims of the loving face of their Saviour with melted cheese obfuscating the facial lines yet the sandwich is sacrosanct I just wanted a midnight snack I wasn't looking for trouble to be a pain or a pest just a pickle some sea salt a sandwich and a fly swatter
