Poem: To Be a God

praise-fathergod1

To be a god

Is to permit the impermissible

To repress the irrepressible

To accept the unacceptable

To the love the unlovable

And to reconcile the irreconcilable

To be rapturously intimate

Yet unbearably neutral

To know all the answers

Yet ask all the wrong questions

To experience being absolutely everything

Whilst being fundamentally unaware of it

To be a god

Is to be more or less the same

As everything else

No different

From you or I

Or the fly that nourishes itself

On your dog’s excrement

Say hello to the fly

Say hello to yourself

Say hello to God

Hello!
