God Says Yes To Me

Jasmine blooming on my altar
I asked God if it was okay to be melodromatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if it was okay to wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to do

Thanks God I said
 And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes  Yes  Yes
