The Gods’ Valentine

For the old Greeks the gods survived
In their sculpture and their architecture
But for us today it’s in our technology
Where they may be safely worshipped
Without having to reveal themselves
As more than inorganic infrastructure
For the Greeks the statues spoke
Words that changed their lives
Erasing the fear of death
Restoring sight to their eyes
But for us we have our phones
The little god of pictures and texts
Our cars where Pegasus
Is bolted to the floor
Our jets where Jupiter
Is made to roar
