God of Water

What if God is water —
He's gonna be pissed about how long
I just zoned out in the shower.
What if God is a banana god
And He resents me for all the ones I've eaten
And all the ones I let rot.
What if God is meaner than Santa Claus
And turns our souls into coal.
What if God is a duck.
We could make all this into a book (or a song),
A meeting, one day a week,
A celebration of doom, the last date in our calendars.
We don't have evidence
But we do have the miracle of indoor plumbing —
A toilet that swooshes my badness into a hole
And into the ocean.
And we have faith enough
To fear all of it.
