Poem of the Week: God Says Yes to Me by Kaylin Haught via Alison McGhee

I think of my sister Petra when I read this and to her I say ‘Yes, yes, always yes’.

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could 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
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

 

A big thank you to Alison McGhee for her curation of these beautiful poems.
