Live and Learn By Sam Floyd

Live and Learn
 
What was it that St. Thomas got to feel?
What was it that his fingers got to touch?
What is it that makes anybody real?
 
With incredulity he had to kneel
as though his lack of faith required a crutch.
What was it that St. Thomas got to feel?
 
A squishy God electric as an eel?
A spinning God like ropes in Double Dutch?
What is it that makes anybody real?
 
Was Jesus top banana or a peel
to make the doubters slip and slide and such?
What was it that St. Thomas got to feel?
 
Did he dig into Jesus like a meal
he had to have until he’d had too much?
What is it that makes anybody real?
 
Could some guy tickle God and make Her squeal?
Which gospel tells you how to drive a clutch?
What was it that St. Thomas got to feel?
What is it that makes anybody real?

Sam Floyd lives in the Crescent Hill neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.  He is presently enrolled in the MFA program in creative writing at Eastern Kentucky University’s Bluegrass Writers Studio.
