Good gods not new gods

Good gods
are everyday getting
few and far between

                                       pull yourself up
                                      by the bootstraps young man.

walk to the Savers store
with gold coins
in my palms,

annoint the broken vases
crooked tables
cracked paintings

which people will
buy or barter for and
bring to their own
churches, their own piece of land.

spread this off-brand salvation
as my last ditch hope for a not quite nation.

open my arms.
