original sin cannot find a hotspot in my mind

at a party last night
this woman
introduced herself
asked if it
was alright
that we mulled
over the idea…
what we thought about “sin”

she was wearing
a chain with a cross
immediately
brought on my suspicion

here she
was ultimately
trying to steer
the conversation
in a direction
which to her
was “godly”
therefore
“worthy”
and not
“pointless”
“base”
“sinful”

the gist:
what do you
sinners
think about sin?

the gist:
us sinners
don’t believe
in sin
which is
why we sin
which is why
to you
it’s all
we seem
to be doing
and why we
do it so freely

with abandon
and a smile

open discussion!

free thinking!

“if you say
you don’t believe
in sin
that means to say
you don’t
believe
in christianity…”

um,
bingo!

we do NOT
we do not

. . .

a night
devoid of
any kind
of fist fight

everything
went alright

fairly smooth

did not turn
into harsh feelings

thank god?

. . .

I don’t know if
any of these
notes on atheism
come off
as bitchy

not what I intend

I’ve always felt
attacked and judged
by some of these
christians
the overall culture
the irksome righteousness

and so now I’m seeking
out a way
to counteract
