on becoming a god

I’ve been googling how to become a god
and I’m finding it’s not as daunting
of a task as you might think

it’s not much different
than other casual aspirations
in which I have tried & failed
all the while claiming it could be done

acquiring the knowledge of self
is a start in the right direction
but that understanding might
only crack open the door

becoming a god is not impossible
but in doing so one must first
seek & destroy their own self

god is in the wine (and the wire)

the light above me starts
humming and pulsating
and it was then I realized
some higher power was communicating to me
telling me how there is so much more
to learn about myself

down below in the basement
inside the fuse box
hot wires pass over neutral ones
arcing into obscurity
sending cross currents
to the nearest known light

go on

satan sat poised and silent
listening to the dead man’s plea
nodding like a disinterested psychiatrist
who magnanimously extended the session
so the injured soul could recount
all the right reasons
for distrusting the existence
of life after death
