when god is trumped by a Lemon

             i 
don't need god today,
just a pitcher of water
a couple rays of lemon
chilled in the fridge
to heavenize 
the lips
such a simple thing
a glass of chilled bliss
no, i dont need god today,
tomorrow may be different 

is it blasphemous,
for telling a simple truth
for this little treasure chest 
of simple pleasures that i own
is god  pissed 
will he slingshot  a burning ball of vengeance...
blind me
because he was trumped by a lemon
they say he has a sense of humor
the good book says he even winks,
no i don't need god today
just a couple yellow rays,
but tomorrow will be different.
