I sit on the palm of God, & toy with the devil’s testicles.
There is no space in hell again, & right now,
a furnace is being prepared on earth/ to burn me into ashes.
A boy pooped on the palm of God, & says its the purging of one’s sins,
he ejaculated on his wrist, & says it’s a way to lay down burdens,
says it’s another way to exaggerate holiness.
But in truth, that’s a euphemism for telling God to let go.
So I fall from the hands of God into darkness, under the devil’s laps.
Between his laps, there resides a clitoris, Delilah’s den, Jezebel’s pit,
and two pillars named Sodom & Gomorrah.
Dining with the devil is interesting,
especially when you use a short spoon.
He’ll teach you how easy a sin is,
he’ll show you how to build castles of unrighteousness in your mind.
So I eat from that apple in eden.
& now I’ve become a branch, with no fruits,
with no leave, with no life. Now I pray not to get preyed,
by the filthy hands of Lucifer, so I plead to God in this poem.
I’m too unrighteous to build an altar In this poem,
so I sneak through the back door of a bible,
and say; I am a temple of God. a living sacrifice.
I suck from the leaking pipes of psalms and say:
Lord, hide thy face from my sins, & blot out all my iniquity.
For I’ve been washed in muddy rivers,
but lord, please; purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean.
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow.
Trust my mouth with your name,
oh lord; & I’ll trust your hands with my heart. Amen.
