Mouth to Ear

by Steve Mitchell

I don’t believe you’re really an atheist.  

We’re a few beers in.  We stand close so we can hear over the loud, uncrowded space.

You believe in a higher power.  

I shrug.  Disparity.  I’m not where he is.  I don’t share his urgency.

And, anyhow, it’s time to go.
