Susan Daniels Poetry

God is easy
when we use Him
to explain what’s wrong here

we love putting words
in His mouth
to suit our politics
and explain prejudice

but if He  spoke, just spoke to us
about how we are the problem
like He did once, in common language
and incarnate
how we own it in our nature
chained to us tighter than breath

we would miss the point again
and, worse than pharisees
we would kill Him again

without the propriety of a trial,
we would lynch Him
or put Him in front of a firing squad

if He spoke

good thing then
that when He comes back
next time, he will be unkillable
and He says
He’s bringing friends
