jesus is a forty foot tall donut
at four forty in the morning
at a crossroads on the road to san berdoo
with moldy coffee
and semen stains on the walls of the men's room
from nineteen ninety five.
sometimes you make it up that hill
the cross is too much to bear
and you find yourself walking back down
swearing you'll start again
