how does that work, devotion and paychecks? | poetry inspired by GoT logion 102

breathe in + breathe out


logion 102

Cursed are your religious leaders
for they are like dogs
sleeping in the feed bin.
They do not eat
nor do they allow the cattle to eat.


How does that work
Devotion and paychecks

Hidden in plain sight wisdom
stays hidden from those
continuously constructing arguments
about the world’s needs
and their ordained appointment
to fix

Broken is not broken
And we don’t need that you

Jesus Christ

Sugar Mama’s callin’

Come here, Sweetie
Come on back

Lie down here
on my bosom

Lie down
You’re okay
Stay here

Be born again
Love’s child
Mother Earth
Father Sky
Garden Home

Tell me your secret
and I’ll tell you mine

Better yet
Show me
and then we’ll give each other a hug

All that’s been hidden
has already been revealed
and it’s all grace
