the outsider by Bogdan Dragos

Gobblers & Masticadores

my neighbor from upstairs
claims that
God sticks
post-it notes on his
fridge overnight

I did ask him
what they said but
he only told me that I'll
have to follow
him to church if
I want to find out

I'm generally not a very
curious guy
so I declined
and, what do you know, few
days later I see
lots of other
people following my
neighbor to church

They all looked the
other way when
I passed by them and said hi

Thing is
I don't even doubt
God spoke to my neighbor
through post-it notes
and gave a lot of people hope

I just
like being the outsider
more than I like
being hopeful

  1. Now that’s the truth personified. I guess an outsider status doesn’t have any strings attached. Being hopeful is another responsibility altogether.
    Great writing and stark message. 🙂

  2. Feels like the beginning of something, probably cause of the stark and surprising twists at the end. Idk about everyone else, despite the “hope” at the end, the coworkers walking past as a group without saying hi gave me the creeps!
