The Storyteller
~for Cormac McCarthy

If all stories have been told
and there's only variance in their telling,
what of gods then,
who know all things?
Future, past, present,
swirled like honey around a silver spoon
before stirring through so much bourbon
meant to coat a singer's throat.
Perhaps God is the story.
Or it becomes the story…
