the way the jesus christs rose

the way they mangled the car even more

to get the remains of the body out

the christs circling like carrion crows

the way they mangled the body even more

to get the remains of the car out

the bloody ravished ravaging christs

each wound the petals of a rose

pulled to pieces by hands of loves

and loves-me-not till the severed stump

remains the jaws of life the spine

christ the stretcher like a bloody shroud

the cross a stem plucked free of petals

the puzzled glass the mangled glass

the gown of glass on the ground with a hole

the size and shape of a thorned crown

the crows smeared like tire tracks

across the remaining lanes of sky

testifying to christ the inability

the inability to jesus the fucking

jesus christlike inability

to stop in time
