I had a disagreement with myself
or maybe it was with my god.

We argued all night and sometimes one
got the better and sometimes the other.

Light and bird-song spoke of the new day;
on this, at least, we agreed.

Format-wise, this is similar to a sijo but it veers somewhat from the spirit of that Korean poetic form. Still, I suppose it's as good a description as any.
