It's a pity 
how often 
God gets trapped 

inside his 
own creation; his unconscionable 
moods, his pure 

and ethereal 
mastery over all ideas—
all of that 

gets tugged back inexorably 
to the dirt, 
weighed down 

by the animal concept 
of drag, which he invented.
And yet, 

never on his way 
to the ground does he 

with ineffable intent 
to wound and 
scar the planet—even as 

its worship turns 
to love and desire 
for distraction—

for namelessness 
still sits above 
all need to harness a crisis, 

and that which is 
clever would
never prescribe 

its own divorce 
from that 
which is kind.
