“Sighting,” by Steven Gowin

Dec 20th, 2012 | By | Category: Fiction, Prose

Morning… Jesus came down and said I could see him in French toast if I wanted.

I said, “Jesus,” addressing him directly, “that’s pretty god damned clichéd.” Jesus said that that hurt his feelings because he’d seen me in a pancake. He might cry special tears now.

Jesus is a manipulative bastard. He’ll say anything. He’s a liar, by god. I told him to go fuck himself, which I guess, not surprisingly, he can actually do and did do.

Seeing that once was enough. It ruined breakfast forever.
