On the Not-Gods

Mere echo of divine,
We are beautiful,
Blessed, And broken.

And so: We try
filling the God-spaces
With not-God.

Playing at divinity,
We are royalty,
Retainer, Retinue.

And so: We suffer
For loyalty
To our not-Gods.

Washing away
The not-Gods
Is harder
Than it looks.

A reflection after
studying 2 Samuel 11,
2 Samuel 12, and Psalm 51
in preparation for worship
