588. He told me

He told me
The forgotten truth:
I pray to God.

He told me
The undiscovered truth:
God needs me.

He told me
The impossible secret:
God fasts in the morning
Because I cannot afford
To eat Light in the morning.

He told me
The open secret:
God starves in the evening
Because I have consumed
All His patience-food.
