    Saturday, Feb 9th.. I did a readin' at my aunts birthday party..
    my family loved it.. my mom challenged me to do a church piece..
    she was like "boy, yuh mus tank da source of yuh talents".. here it is..
    this piece, might be perform'd at church.. don't know when..
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "ooh my LAWD.. lawwwd lawwd, laww-awd.. mmmhm.. mmmhm!!"

    when the band plays---
    our zenith pulls us into space;
    a forest of leafless bodies
    vertically stretch'd hyperbolically
    to smack the sun out it's socket.

    make room
    for invert'd spines
    climbin' outta church thighs, like
    the stem of a cherry.

    we stretch our arms
    like antennaes, fishin' frequency
    on a holy ghost channel

    'cause when that feelin' hits
    we be whinos in the spirit; a group of tongue-tied souls
    too drunk to sing the rest of that song.

    we be whinos beggin' "JESUS!!!"
    to turn our saliva to wine

    'cause that feelin' be an intravenus rush,
    sendin' us dancin' like seizure patience, convulsin' a "HALLELUUUU-JAH!!!"
    & "A-AAY MEN!!!.. A-AAY MEN!!!"

    that feelin's funkier than sweaty socks in church shoes
    that beat the sanctuary floor,

    tellin Lucifer to "RUN!!"
    'cause when the stampede comes
    we speakin' in tongues
    & it'll be like guns---
    propellin' prayer off the tip of our tongues
    like bullets comin' to give you a dry baptism &..

    LAWD!!
    I got this feelin

    LAWD!!
    I got this feelin

    LAWD!!
    I got this

    LAWD!!
    I got this

    LAWD!!
    I

    LAWD!!
    I

    LAWD!!
    I

    LAWD!!
    I

    LAWD!! I got the Holy Ghost
    runnin' through me..
