fleshy & feral

Tomas Moniz

tonguelashed & licked     home is never farther than your mouth     that whispering rebel god     eschewing commandments     smiting no one     no thing     knowing faith resides     fleshy & feral     on the tip of tongue     less scripture     more oracle     audacious     dangerous     disciples will preach     one day long after we are legend     shelter is an act     starts with the word welcome     includes everyone     understands that you can’t tame a wild tongue     you can only cut it out
