Jesus Saves


Treasures have eluded me
same shirt as yesterday
same torn sneakers
same night gags.

Where do paupers rest
park bench studios
internet cafes
appliance boxes?

Is there a savior
oily necks
or piss scented hideaways?

Jail cell luxury
is best for me
three hots and a cot
god loves us all.

Jesus left today
black Lexus
with sirens blasting
morning prayers.
