Where The Stars Shine - Poem by Barry Middleton

god is not the old man in the painting
I'm not sure what god is
but surely not that

some believe god walked in the garden
stole a rib and banned the apple
creating judgment and guilt

they believe god once took an interest
punishing evil on an evil earth
and keeping accounts

now rampant iniquity goes unpunished
and god no longer cares to act
the ledger is closed

but perhaps god is the final singularity
the black hole at the center of time
beyond the last horizon

so god may dwell beyond the star shine
in silent and indifferent rest
on the seventh day
