tasting god from my fingertips// to this matchstick (every time a part of me breaks, my flesh bursting forth clear and pure and seraphic, i kneel between the pews) /you lead me drunk// off the rooftop, the night we first kissed.
i’m in a dull, grey cube, wincing at fluorescent terrors look down and i’m naked, veins peeling open/ /Will you come back, if i show you how much i feel it? it couldn't hurt— i couldn't hurt any more than this/
my friends haven't known spirituality past a bag/ pushed through through your truck’s open window/ passed a bar passing hands like a love note limp joints burning our fingertips// your hands, my throat
open your nose, open your eyes to the world watch the clouds racing through the sky and in this moment// everything is perfect heaven's light falling upon our faces
