If spirituality is an interpretation of emotional flavors

I would create a tongue map of human consciousness

And explain how each feeling is tied to its own set of traditions

How they're featured in different cultures

What ingredients communicate such a flavor

I would experiment and concoct new recipes

Experience new states of being

If a line could be drawn between science and belief

It would perfectly bisect my mind

and point right at my family tree

My grandma knew what songs to play each Sunday

Her sister spread the charismatic renewal

Their grandfather built the steeple

My father constructed his own world

His mother had visions

And they each fed me dinner
