Plastic

27 Nov

I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please.

Not enough to explode my soul

or disturb my sleep,

but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk, or a snooze in the sunshine.

I don’t want enough of God to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant.

I want ecstasy, not transformation.

I want warmth of the womb, not a new birth.

I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack.

I would like to buy $3 worth of God, please.
