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

God weird
What am I feeling?
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
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

God weird
What am I feeling?
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
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

God Weird
What am I feeling
God Weird
