The girl on the phone is sulking; her aunt
on the other end is dispensing what she thinks
is God’s Word, but the girl knows this all to be
a lie — she knows that the world does expand
to encompass all kinds of love, that a woman
kissing another woman goodbye at the airport
does not mean I will see you in Hell,
that Hell is not a circle of fire and brimstone
but rather the state in which
her aunt is calling her, right now,
the line a little crackly,
the signal about to cut out.
