Things and Gods
by B. T. Newberg
Age Group: Adult
The bed lamp, pill jar, sheets, and the gods.
The I-beam, scrapyard, bricks, and the gods.
The drawstring, tongue flap, boots, and the gods.
The runway, wind sock, wings, and the gods.
The clothespin, camisole, briefs, and the gods.
The wash cloth, soap tub, bleach, and the gods.
The tea spoon, cheesecloth, sink, and the gods.
The stove-top, spice rack, plates, and the gods.
The door bolt, peephole, locks, and the gods.
The chain fence, barbed wire, gates, and the gods.
The guard dog, draw-shade, blinds, and the gods.
The doorman, password, key, and the gods.
The bow-tie, cumberbun, ring, and the gods.
The bride-gown, wine glass, toasts, and the gods.
The headboard, bedpost, sweat, and the gods.
The midwife, birth seat, blood, and the gods.
The shoelace, dollhouse, braids, and the gods.
The lip gloss, hairpins, heels, and the gods.
The stretch marks, waist lines, warts, and the gods.
The eye bags, hair dye, moles, and the gods.
The asphalt, pot hole, cracks, and the gods.
The warehouse, glass shards, rats, and the gods.
The cobwebs, dust heaps, wind, and the gods.
The raindrop, mud-clay, seeds, and the gods.
Author's Notes: c 2010
As a Naturalistic Pagan, I believe in evidence. There is no evidence that deities and magic are "real" in the most literal sense, but they may yet be moving and powerful. These poems are a tribute to the inspiration of Pagan ways.
For more information on naturalism, see HumanisticPaganism.com.
