We trap God


Photo by @brianphone

We trap God,
hang Him
in stained glass,
entrance Him
by organ music
and chorus

We bind Him
by ritual,
tickle Him
by prayers
and train Him
to become our pet.

And we freely
make Him
take off
our guilt
of exploiting
too much,

Of having
too much,
of wasting
too much,
of living
too comfortably
Once the desert God,
jealous
and wild;
now an amulet
on a charm
bracelet.

—Yorifumi Yagucchi
  Sapporo, Japan.
