Worthy of Worship


a boulder with a perfectly round hole drilled through it
way out in the wilderness where they can find no evidence
of man ever having been before
how did it happen a million billion years ago?
someone suggested erosion
the scientists said no way, the hole is too perfect, laser precise
a punny reporter christened it The Holey Boulder
people who can’t spell well misunderstood the moniker
and started turning toward it at noon
whispering prayers to a distant desert rock
worshipping an ancient mineral deposit
wishing death upon all those who don’t love above all else
a boulder with a perfectly round hole drilled through it
