“Iconoclast”

“Buddha was
a scam artist!”
So says
the iconoclast.
“Sometimes Jesus
could be a real
prick!”

My dreams
of alchemy
were just
that.

I pick up a pile
of shit
and hold it
to my nose.

“Breathe deeply!”
Imagine that rays
of light and love
are entering your nostrils.
Namaste!”

I start to gag.
“Real men don’t gag!”

I don’t know
what real men do
but I do know that
real humans gag
when they smell shit
and I’m a human
so I gag
and say,
“This is God’s shit!”

Then I drop it
and get on with my life
as a creature
of light and darkness.
I’ll let the matter rest there
and find a bit of peace.
