Lord God Bird

Repurposed from an essay written by Issac Anderson, a friend of a friend, in Image.

LORD GOD BIRD

Keep moving.
whisper, chant
sing. if the word is Hallelujah, say
Hallelujah; if fear, say

You are an amateur. Obey
the words on the page, no need to improvise

Once a boy killed a giant with a stone and
when he grew up he became poet-king and he was famous
like Elvis, and people said, david, he knows God, but if he knew

anything, he knew
to be honest.
