- black bible wet and ripe
- i could hear the church in his chest
- braiding the hymn into cornrows
- grape juice in the nile
- black joy whispering between fingertips
- sacrifice your only begotten people
- bringing us home to wash in silken coconut oil
- the gospels of flesh fortified
- the skin of judas
- metaphors made sterile
- the skin of jesus
- making body eternal destination
- crafting genesis out of noose & branch
