are you asleep or are you awake?
were you found lying naked in the dirt by your mother’s grave?

holding flowers
offering penance for the idea of sin
we’re all monster
we’re all savior
we’re all on the same list

are you a dead man?
have you sorted your own affairs?
trust no messiah with new clothes and clean hair

we bear the burden
we sing lullabies to your children
for you
so you don’t have to

are you asleep or are you awake?
are you standing in line at the hospital
bleeding on the floor again?

are you a dead man?
are you coming up for air?
the prophet brought you
a new line of credit
a dollar for a prayer

a new blanket of snow to lay beneath
and pray for thaw
