Savior

Wear their crown
when the light eats the night
blood was shed
bread was bro­ken
they let you down

bur­ial gown
when your hands stopped to shake
wires blos­som
and need­less things
they call you king

with your gaze
you turned them into gold
with your voice
your rose them from the dead
dressed in feath­ers
you sent them up to heaven
where they reside
with promised vir­ginal brides

made of stone
the liv­ing bow their heads
accept their gifts
expand your reign
from the other side

and your home
men who trade in words
will keep it empty
expose your body
to the world

with your thoughts
they turn them into gold
with your voice
they rise them from the dead
dressed in leather
they send them up to heaven
where they reside
proudly by your side
