Alternative Book of Job or God has a Mother and Y’all Didn’t Even Know it


I look up at the sky and say,

“Dios mío, I got a couple questions.”


God pulls up. He says, “Mi’jo, what

questions you got? I stutter a little


cause I’m shook by his appearance

but I manage to ask, “You mad at atheists?”


He says, “Nah, mi’jo, it’s whatever.” I ask

him what his favorite food is. He says, “Carnitas.”


I’m like, “Deadass?” He says, “Yeah, in a

warm tortilla with chirmol and guacamol


with a cold glass of Coke on the side. I’m

like, “Shit, I thought you weren’t human


so you didn’t have to eat.” He’s like, “Yeah,

I don’t have to, but I like to.”


Then He tells me, “Good talk but now

I gotta dip cause my mom’ll be mad


if I pull up late to dinner.” I’m like, “Wait,

what the fuck, what mom?” But He doesn’t


hear me. By the time I say the words,

He’s already long gone.
