between a hydrangea and an azalea
how am I supposed to choose a God?
If I can’t choose between
Blur and Oasis
or which car to drive,
bottle of whisky,
am I a cat or dog person,
would I like fries with my order,
would I like to upsize for an extra dollar,
should I carry an umbrella,
should I shift my retirement savings
from conservative to a riskier strategy
if it means I’ll get a better return?
How am I supposed to choose a God
if I can’t pick which people I’m meant to decry?
I mean, which gospel should I deny? Which flag should I burn?
Can I imagine no religion and choose the Gospel of John?
How am I supposed to choose a God if I like everyone?
