SWING LOW

from Take Me To Church


Contention in the bones racked
for an entropic payback
on futurity
where heaven's wide eye circuiting surveils
tomorrow,
today's annuity:
the fang├ęd frenzy woven in the dust of sorrow.

Crave aught for thy ghost to part,
laureled with lightnings and my human smart,
full child of God thou art.
