the gods of others (not your god(s))

the gods of others are never there,
                                                                      they are never there
they don’t come when you want them to
they are not reliable; always out to lunch
or doing whatever gods do to pass the time

when i speak towards the sky, i never get a response
maybe they just don’t speak english?
the gods of others stay outside of my head
the gods of others are u-n-believably dreadful
(not deserving of awesome god t-shirts and hats)
they leave me to think for myself
the gods of others, i do not understand them
they want my charitable contributions
in exchange for symbols, to die for

the gods of others are never there,
                                                                      they are never there
they don’t know my name and never come around
they refuse to make their presence known
even absent from the foxholes, deathbeds, and jails of society
the gods of others are as quiet as church mice

are they just indifferent or hard of hearing?
they hide right-out in plain view
often resembling, the people who proselytize them
they are risen in the form of men, with beards or bald heads
or sometimes as fantastical creatures of light
or in the form of statues, swapping animal parts for human parts
elevated on an altar, to be gazed upon from below
they won’t lower themselves to sit on my couch
they don’t come to dinner
they don’t move objects in the air
and they won’t defeat the enemy in battle

the gods of others don’t bless inanimate objects
or animate objects – for that matter
the gods provide no protection
they remain elusive and non-inclusive
the gods of others don’t care, if i live or die
the gods of others are never there,
                                                                      they are never there
the gods of others just don’t care

estar en buenas manos /in good hands

manos como guantes
llevaba para decoración
tomar con lujuria
la corriente de química
escondido dentro
universo en expansión
dentro de su mente

manos que saben
manos que te hacen
tú son sus herramienta
sus desempeño
sus marioneta
enamorado de las cuerdas
que le conectan

bienvenida a las manos
manos que poner en libertad
con el tirón suave
de tú cuerdas
y tú la amas a ella mucho
manos que tú cree en

hands like gloves
put on for decoration
to take lustfully
the chemical flow
concealed within
expanding universe
inside your mind

hands that know
hands that fashion you
you are their tool
their performance
their marionette
smitten with the strings
that connect you

hands you welcome
hands that set you free
with the gentle tug
of your strings
and you love her dearly
hands you believe
