just because I love the Lord
doesn't mean there aren't times
I'd like to grab him and stick his head
under the wheels of a truck--

if grace truly superceded karma
forgiveness might be possible--
but for our temporary flesh bags
we bear the brunt and the anger

and the hatred of such cold brief mercy--
it makes trying a tasteless cosmic joke

but for now let me terminate this self-portrait
by saying shantih or some such shit

and then...not saying it
