I would like to wear a white suit, that heavenly bellboy uniform of sweating snakehandlers
On special occasions
For when I perform that rarest of theological maneuvers: the reverse exorcism
When I steal the Evangelicals’ shtick/ oh baby
When I let the spirit enter you (let us pray)
We will have to see (look at me, playing the skulking other/ how debonair)
If you continue to say
Is a religion of peace.
