“Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” 1 John 5:21

glowing devices and
plastic cards
   fit so easily
   in our hands;
envy, prejudice,
fear, greed
   rest so comfortably
   in our souls;
anger, bitterness,
judgment, hurt
   leap so quickly
   to our lips;
how can we not
these so close to us?
