A HIGHER ORDER
(6/18/19)


a higher
power
sounded
too much
a human
projection

too
anthropocentric

but
they told me
that I needed
something
greater
than myself
to get sober

God
just seemed
too
out of reach

as any
god
should be

but I could
grasp
the concept
of a complicated
clockwork

something
controlling
the cosmic

the subatomic
movements

those dynamics
quite beyond
the reach
of my senses

far from
any of my
puny
rationalizations

I chose
to place
my faith
upon those

and whatever
influenced
the migrations
of my
advisors

of that
I wanted
no part
