Once, I saw God
upon my ceiling
And now my days
may be numbered
(Let the count down begin)

A misheard prayer
to the God I don't
(really) believe in
to save my their lives
(Take mine instead)

Time passed,
I don't drop dead
life goes on

Eyes closed
Lotus position
whispering my
(Hindu) mantra

Reality s t r e t c h e s,

Demonic joining the Divine
Both taking up residency

On My Ceiling,
Under My Bed
