Unexpected

. . . and then

every now and again

Life reminds me

that I have been worshiping

that elusive god

named Control

(a false idol, in fact,

yet I repeatedly make my altar to it)

so Life holds up a mirror

to my foolishness

and God tumbles me in a wave

to disorient

and reorient

my gods, my priorities.

So thank you, God,

for this shake-up

(and perhaps tomorrow

I will mean that

with more sincerity

than sarcasm).
