"I read on a slip of paper at dinner tonight that
You must empty yourself before God may enter
so I emptied myself and found
the bottom of a lake bed
caked with sticky mud
next to a sign that said
do not swim."

"After Another Execution" in There, There by George Higgins, reviewed by Heather Dobbins (via therumpus)
