how a godhead cums // to earn his stripes:

by making out with himself 
in an oracular mirror 

look this glass is not so darkly 
after all a crystal ball 

is just another name for 
some science-based sensory 

revival bubble bursting 
blood & seedlings

in private protest 
go try to test this 

rule of thumb or
finger in the afterlife 

I triple doG dare 
dearest reader

or else let heaven fuck
your ever-virgin mother

but no this poem 
ain’t no dozens

disciple numbers  & 
some change 

where I come from
motherfuckers stay

the same: no hatchets
below ground and no

liquor on Sundays
