"There Are Three Gods" (by Joe DiMino)

There are three gods
Never united a Christian one—
But I always
Choose love
Over fame and fortune:

For one worships
The iconic likeness
Of fame and fortune,
But love requires sacrifice
And not strengthening of the ego
(Regal focus on self);

Owning fame and fortune
One must covetously,
Often on the run
With laser sights pursue
To recapture;
While love requires
A trusting freedom—

True, love will not feed us
Or pay the rent...
But evicted we are all in time
From these decaying monstrosities—
And as the physical scientist
Them-selves attest—
Love seems all we take with us
Never found on the autopsy.
