Forget your churches,
mosques and temples
places where dreams
are exposed
and visions turn
to halcyon mists.

They are cages for God
capture for the collective
human souls imprisoned
kneeling before priests
while becoming wives for prophets.

You who stand
before your fathers gaze
hypnotized as fodder
monkeys for labs
and zeros for the codes
of infinity.

We secretly hope
that birds will never learn
of God, of angels from Mars,
the flights of the stained Odinson
They will find the secrets
we can't discover
inside the blinding Sun
fueled by heroin desires
and contained forever
in cages for God.
