She Said Something

why you gotta test the Jesus in me

it happens in unlikely places / like costco, they’re blocking the carrots / not caring / not the cancer—that has a binder, a video / push play and i’ll tell the doctor you’re almost ready / not the lover—drowning ourselves in pink drink—those are the fences we can shag away on a sunday / it’s the hooks to the face when you’ve taken out my lungs / dear brother / why you gotta test the Jesus in me? / i’m coming for you bloodied and empty / handed over by a God who introduced us / bonanza / dear brother—why you gotta test the Jesus in me? / tell your demons but it’s her she’s safe / then today when the hounds are breathing / panting at our door / i will stand up / square off / look them in the eyes and send them to cower.
