The House of God

If I don't look at it,
it can't destroy me.

What delights & comforts us?
Why do we return to drink

from the poisoned stream,
annoint ourselves with tap-water?

How do we live our lives like
electricity in a cardboard box?

Prophecy is golden; reality
is tarnished. Who will be

condemned and who will be
allowed in the house of God?
