play god [poem]

it is a heavy burden
to be the child of an ambrosia addict with no name
an immortal unremembered
he will never be a good father figure
divine hands useless against a baby’s fever
or a toddler’s scraped knees
or a young woman’s broken heart
instead he will play god
invisible and holy beyond all this
mortal mindlessness
