centerfold napowrimo #17

there’ve been too many days
where i got lost in the realization
that jesus was a centerfold; left his
cross at home ‘cause he didn’t want
to scare the gentiles away.

we all have bones hidden
beneath the earth of our hearts,
create body bags of
guilt underneath our eyes
because there’s no more
skeletons, only chunks of
off-white seeds between
veins, blood and earth.

put shit on a plate and call
it a gourmet fuckin’ meal
because most of us will eat
anything when we’re hungry
for the ecstasy we’ve been missing
out for so long—that moment
of awe upon realizing that the
single greatest event was the day
you stopped, to say hello.
