I Keep Getting into Fistfights with God Every Sunday

I need to just give up and sit in the back pew
like a child in the good old days when I'd sleep
through church. Now I fight with politics
and movie ticket prices and youtube ads, as if
my church is wrath, the wrinkles in my lungs
foreshadowing a hundred thunderbolts landing
on my failures. But I argue back that I believe
in God, otherwise I wouldn't fight Him. It takes
faith to argue, the belief in belief, how moronic
we all are, and the monk tells me that not
is better than being naked in July.
