So this beam of LED light appeared to me in the room and then a guy stood there, in the middle of it, tongue off to the side, using his index finger on an iPhone. He had bifocals perched on his nose. He tapped the screen and the LED light disappeared. He was wearing faded, blue mechanic coveralls and a gold chain around his neck. I couldn’t pin-point his age. He seemed older, but then he seemed ancient, all at once.
He stood there, looking at me. Smiling, he said, “Well, here I am. What do you want to know?”
I asked him about the LED, and he told me it was an upgrade from the usual pillar of fire.
We regarded each other and I said, presumptively, “So you’re God.”
