Fickle Faith

Cover Image

I used to be a deist.

I tried to bury myself underground,

so that I could share the roots with the trees

until my feet fell asleep

and the pain was too much to bare.




I used to be a hippie,

bowing to mother earth.

        A flower child,

        tree hugger,

freak of ­— nature enthusiast.


I tried to be an atheist

when judgments

were as non-existent

as the deity in my dreams.


I stopped asking

and started listening.

Instead of prayer,

I turned to meditation

and the soft bell rang

as my feet rested on the insides of my thighs,

as if reaching for my soul,
