To Test an Agnostic

To Test an Agnostic

They tried once to convince me

with brimstone, hate and history

waterfalls and consistency

a universe of complexity –

that God must surely be.

But only now can I see

in the miracle that you could be,

and somehow, too, in love with me

an argument that somewhere She

is laughing silently.
