Earth Is My Church (Prayer) - Poem by Ray Lucero

Great Spirit;
Earth is my church
I shall offer no prayers in churches of men
My temples are the mountains whose spires,
Embrace vulvic clouds in ecstatic intercourse

No burnt offerings shall be made upon thine,
Altars of stone save these bones upon my death
No words shall leave this mouth in praise or adoration,
of any false god or icon

I shall not raise my hand in anger to strike my brothers
Of free-will I offer the totality of by being in service to thee,
Alpha and Omega Everlasting

    and in religious places built by man
    sits evil all its worth.
