God Weird


Teacher took my mother
to watch me on the playground
I had a habit of
climbing up the trash mound
and stripping for a crowd
of rowdy adolescents
in a parody of puberty
and human evanescence

Weird
God weird
What am I feeling?
Weird
God weird

I damn near died
at the moment of conception
Ma-ma-my daddy
couldn't keep his erection
But you'd never know it
to see me today
Cuz I stand up straight
like a typical gay
With
a flock of baby birds
that are stuck in my mouth
I wanna gag and gag
till they come fluttering out
But I'm living with lock jaw
and egg-shell cheeks
I keep dreading the day
that they discover their beaks

Weird
God weird
Weird
What am I feeling?
Weird
God Weird

Give me tears
give me the God tears
Give me fears
give me the God fears
Give me weird
Give me the God weird

How to bake space:
Pay attention to the batter
fluff it up good
whip it fatter and fatter
It takes one part dust
detonated and scattered
and then 99-plus
of dark matter
But
you shutter at the thought
of a cook or a kitchen
ever since you were six
you could smell the religions
boiling all the love
into poisonous glue
and recruiting the kids
like cannibals do

Weird
God Weird
Weird
What am I feeling
Weird
God Weird
