poetry from another dimension

free thinking

how did i get this job?
i’m not holy
i never was holy
well yes we are all holy
but not holier than thou

i wonder
as images break down
and deeper authenticities
are revealed
who can tell really
what is happening

the image of the holy
is just that

an image

our attachment to
what
it
looks
like
causes the fun of life to go
missing

an image on the back of a milk container
“have you seen joy?”
or a sheet posted on a telephone poll
“lost: the integrity of wanton abandon”
or (may this never come true for you…)
the picture of ourselves
that we want others to see
its okay to have fun, you will still be holy

your first poop was holy to your mother

the holy image
is
just
a
container
my friends
for you to project your own
holiness
upon
