I coulda had religion.

I nearly dropped the butter
 - there, on the piece of toast
an image of our Lord
clear as day.

then at lunchtime 
in the melanzane parmigiana
- there, in the aubergine seeds
holy script from the Qur’an
clear as day.

and at dinner
gazing down at my
alphabetti spaghetti
- there, in the tomato sauce:
"You gullible twat"

clear as day.
