Poetry Thursday ... on God and medication

We Might Have To Medicate You

Resist your temptation to lie
By speaking of separation from God,

We might have to medicate

In the ocean
A lot goes on beneath your eyes.

They have clinics there too
For the insane
Who persist in saying things like:

"I am independent from the Sea,

God is not always around

Pressing against
My body."

From: 'The Gift'
Translated by Daniel Ladinsky
