Christian Rock Stars

For Margot on the occasion of her third birthday

and they mean to tell you how wholly and absolutely
loved you are [by the Father]            how beautiful
and unironically made            How responsible you are

for the hideous death of a man who bled
and breathed, stopped            and started again.
Wearing biceps          well-cut abs            the hair

of surfers           the very most brilliant eyes         They mean
to tell you they love you too               regardless
in the form of their tight-struts             below pink lights

[and words like Jesus]                Putting on sunglasses
and taking them off they love you        will sing
They will give you            an autograph           Accept it
