Choke on the words.

I am not blessed
and your words are only that
I smile at it
I listen
without response.

I’m atheist
for that I must
choke on the words
because religion
is everywhere
on the counters
as I wash my hands
pamphlets buried
in piles of clothes
I must fold
in our laws
in our regulations.

I must choke on it.

Your inspiration I find lacking
in comfort
in knowledge
in safety.

Your books are blurring lines
seeping into our laws again
I will not live like this
I will not live governed
by an afterlife
that doesn’t exist.

If I’m wrong?
I will not change in death
because I will not be ruled
by laws that are biased
because life itself is not
and an eternal life
is worthless
if it is ruled
by any singular creation.

Thanks for reading.
