I know a person who made God...
a philosophy, a symbol, a rule,
a parent, a friend, a groom,
a tyrant, a lie, a fantasy,
an emotion, a purpose, a passion,
a game, a paycheck, a trend,
an excuse, a debate, an enemy,
an artisan, life, love, nature,
science, the universe, himself, tradition,
all the things he never had, and
all the things she always wanted...
as if they molded Him out of clay,
with their own dusty, earth-covered hands.
