Catechism

.
Who made you?
God made me

What else did God make?
God made all things

Why did God make you and all things…
 …………..—Children’s Catholic Catechism

Catechism

god made the world
as much an open sewer
as an emerald in space

why did god
make the world whirl
was it grace?

and why me
part dark part bright

why did god concoct schism,
emeralds and sewers,
shade and light,
television

why did god so diddle
why make two poles?
……………Ah!
no ends, no middle

seeing  the corona of an eclipse
grabbing the fire ring round
a vacant gate

here a veined leaf
there scorched earth upon an earthen plate
bitterness unbounded.unbounded love
weightlessness and weight
decision indecision

are we made to love
and serve or launch hate on a roll,
—made to suck the us from we?

but to suck the us from we leaves me
with no god above
