c/o the Fourth Circle of Hell
Dear Mr. Sherman Alexie,
I’ve given it some thought
and there’s a handful of people
in addition to Jimmy Durante
that I find may be able to start a small religion:
Philip Seymour Hoffman (could have)
Jack Mueller (already has, but there are maybe only 3 or 4 of us –
is there a minimum requirement?)
These are right off the top of my head, of course.
I’m sure there are many more.
I’ll be sure to write if I think of any.
I would also like to make a suggestion in regards to
Entire religions are based on coincidence.
Coincidence implies a kind of casual acceptance.
Might you consider replacing coincidence with nonsense?
Entire religions are based on nonsense.
What with such a conversational burning bush and all…
If I was on fire, I wouldn’t be nearly as calm.
Can you imagine?
(or branches, rather)
I’m on fire! I’m on fire!
Please! Moses, please! Put me out!
