THE HAND OF GOD
(3/18/16)


when we
personify
The Deity

any deity

by action

by attribute

by intent

we superimpose
our weaknesses

our flaws

upon that
which should be
perfect

we humanize
our higher power
in order to understand
the incomprehensible

an understandable
rationale

a flawed
rationale

why pray
to our likeness?

why pray
at all?

an unknowable
entity
should remain
that way

be comfortable
with the ineffable

forget
the flowing
beard
