Best Poem of r james sterzinger

I Wanna Touch God

i wanna
touch god
where he lives
if it's silence
or vibration.

i wanna reach
out to see
if he is real.
like when you
skin a knee
or break a beer
bottle on the side
walk and hear it
smash.

i wanna smell god
like the sun when it's
hot and yellow.

i wanna see god
like emptiness.
that rainbow moment
when something means something:
when the east is pitchblack
and the western sky
is just right.
yeah!
like a rainbow.

i wanna touch god
feel him
like bactine in
a cut.
i wanna feel him, ...

it stands arms held out from
itself, a slow mist falling.


This electrical phone high-line pole...
stands circled in sidewalk cement
next to the old railroad trestle, that is crumbling.
