The civil war by anne sexton l.jpg
The Civil War by Anne Sexton

God dressed up like a whore

in a slime of green algae.

God dressed up like an old man

staggering out of His shoes.

God dressed up like a child,

all naked,

even without skin,

soft as an avocado when you peel it.

And others, others, others.

and build a whole nation of God

but I will conquer myself.

I will dig up the pride.

I will take scissors

and cut out the beggar.

I will take a crowbar

and pry out the broken

pieces of God in me.

I will put Him together again

with the patience of a chess player.
