Good God (a poem)

Good God by David A. Church

The book informs me of God,
takes more than a lifetime
to define, except in hundreds of lines
able to sum all
and thus point to a joke
still on Vernon,
the marked proof of a Martyr
like Justin the healer,
a fictional believer
who eats life and contains spirit,
unexperienced in talking of reason,
retelling true tales not witnessed,
a cost to fuel the tradition.
His philosophy weaves in words
explaining an uncaused move,
an unmoved cause
some divine of a James or Catherine
sensing if there’s not enough passion
faith and substance
in their choice of language
with no flow and beyond comprehension.

David A. Church
