Song of Un-Belief

Zeus, cloud-gatherer
gray-eyed Athena
many-talented Apollo
and Aphrodite from the sea
licks of hap luck
the ruck of brine wrecks
and my tack in time’s wrinkle
better than the War God of Sinai
or the Preacher of Peace
the gods I choose not to believe in
well-meaning, intemperate Zeus
Athena who may or may not smile
Apollo of the dawn
and salt-scented, golden Aphrodite.
