God

But for me God exists because I have to make a choice
Between a slurp of holy water or of watery milk in palm
Before a God that existed as a bull, a bird and a stone
And at times, a monkey or air flaming from a crevice.
More because he is a word that creeps into my morning
A reason for a night to fall gently away from my eyes.
