i
Remember
department of corrections
number when pushing plunger
Remember
driver license number
when cashing pay
checks

So
we can watch
HBO
pray to Jesus momentarily
look into mirror and see stars
lately answered blood flowing
in

The
middle of the body where
everyone sleeps at night after prayers
tithes paid to change the pockets
of preachers

politicians drop bombs in
the middle east
to be taken seriously

christ cannot see without glasses
doesn’t see the soul right in
front of him

Keep on soldiering through a
poke in side accidentally
letting the wine seep out
overdose slow so he could
reach heaven

wait for the rest
of us
to
rejoice
with him in
Paradise
