The Religious

 

Being religious

has nothing to do with the world

 

The world minds itself

and its wars, quakes and lack-love

 

The god of the religious

does not reside in the world;

has nothing to do with it

 

The dilemma that religious people face

is that they're nothing but the world

 

Their thoughts of a god is also the world

 

We well remember

how Galileo Galilei was jailed

and exiled by the religious

because he understood

that the Earth was not the centre

of the solar system

 

We remember

how Giordano Bruno was burned

at the stake by the religious

because he maintained

that the universe was endless

and populated by intelligent beings

 

We remember

how the religious

burned women they called witches

at the stake

 

The difficulties of the god-creepers

of today

reside in the same environment,

like crouching dead insects

 

Yes, the religious paint the invisibility

of their god

across the wars, quakes and lack-love

of the world

 

We tear the invisibility of the god

out of their minds

and step on it

 

The religious are security risks

 

We burn the absence of their god

in the relentlessness of perspicacity,

and the world smiles

out of the sheets on clothes lines

and the asphalt roads rained clean

far and near
