Our journeys take us different places. We all expand... differently.

I remember
In college,
Sitting in the coffee shop
With a Christian fundamentalist friend.
I drew pictures
On a napkin
Of how I believe
God works:
God in the middle
Of everything,
With so many lines
To approach Him
Or Her.
He grew more and more
One Way
He said.
Then he repeated
One Way.
My friend
Had dabbled in the occult,
Had become a Mormon
For awhile.
He found a home
In college,
A Quaker college
(at that).
One Way
He repeated
One Way.
We finished our coffee.
He became
Roman Catholic.
I went to seminary.
