– my benediction –

Pick me up, when I

pick myself apart again.

Stitch me up, when I

bust open each of my limbs.

DON’T FAIL ME, don’t bail on this

convict, with less conviction.

DON’T FAIL ME, don’t bail if I’m

wanted. My benediction

~

is a plea longer than most, a

beggar’s breath I cannot boast, looks

like a plum but reeks of sulfur,

the only prayer I can offer.

Hallelujah, alleluia,

I give these words to you.

Hallelujah, alleluia…
