THE GOD YOU MAKE
(9/15/10)


scan
the bright sky
til your eyes
go dry

dig
the dark ground
til your skin
turns brown

   look up
   look down
   look all around
   look in the mirror
   no god
   to be found

read
holy lines
til your mind
declines

pray
all damned day
til your throat
goes dry

   look up
   look down
   look all around
   look in the mirror
   no god
   to be found

cry
no god hears
sobs silenced
by tears

curse
no god cares
eternity
nowhere

   look up
   look down
   look all around
   look in the mirror
   no god
   to be found

raise your head
pray no more
God is dead

raise your head
pray no more
God is dead
