God’s Proxy

How can a God, any god, choose among Its creatures,
when It is all there is, and responsible for all? To be

true to Itself, a God must love the rebel goats for
their rebellion; the obedient sheep for their obedience;

must be on every side of everything that is, It is,
everywhere and always, simultaneously entangled

in every being, and cannot choose among Its many parts;
therefore, a God appoints Luck Its proxy—that blind,

indifferent force that strikes, or not, as its nature
moves it; that cannot itself be moved by either

prayer, or imprecation. With Luck a God embraces
Its entire creation, judging none; interfering never.
