Pray,   p. 17

Pray 
as if there is a special Jesus 
for heathens, a demigod 
for the semiwhole, a song of redemption 
with one note for one ear, an inside 
without an out. 0 special Jesus, 
beacon of weak light to weaker eyes, 
dashboard icon for the parking elite, 
one-sided coin-call it: tails, tails, tails, 
tails-pray for us. Pray 
like tomorrow is already here, 
pray that the shallows will stay 
calm and clear. Pray we don't die 
in our sleep. Pray, special Jesus, 
our insides stay wild, dark, and deep.
