glossolalia

we are human snakes

 

...

 

speaking in 'tongues',

ordinary people

without will,

release of all ego,

sputter forth the

vocalization

and innermost connection

to anything remotely comprehensible

of the concept of

 

'god',

 

~

 

as 'holy scholars',

doctors of philosophy,

and 

'the righteous'

and us,

scoff,

 

~

 

to look towards words

created by 

'jesus',

'mohammeds',

'gandhis',

'jiddus',

'obamas',

or even

'star magazine',

 

~

 

to raise and inflate our 

balloon of spirituality

and fly to a place we call

'heaven',

to touch a 'god' that created 

us in an image that 

we have never laid eyes on,

but only interpreted

within the realm of human

capacity.

 

~

 

we refer to this thinking

as 'sane',

and those who 

sputter glossolalia

questionably

'unstable'.

The snake. An animal with a 'forked tongue'.
