If you believe…
There is a God of Butterflies, a God of Lottery Tickets,
A God of Storm and Thunder, of the Ocean Waves,
Sibling Gods of Dream and Despair,
Even Gods for Cats and Dogs,
And Gods of Love and Hate,
Even a God of Poems.
I don’t believe in any of that nonsense,
Save for the God of Hate.
I believe because I feel the God’s presence.
It’s like an anchor at the back of the skull,
A hand embracing my heart,
A dull ache that never goes away,
A pain that become pleasure.
Many deities but all in the same vein of worship.
You get it, my fellow believers.
Waiting in line, Co-workers, In-laws
Children, Traffic, Asparagus
Commercials, Emission Tests, Taxes.
Bow down on your knees and pray.
And if our God needs sacrifices…
I’m just a mortal waiting in line.
