The lease of God in skin

On an axe and fiddling tone was words made
The words poured by several servant in several decades
Even when centuries make it a phony talk
A minute still make it a root that stems need

In a hut was God descended
Even when earth was His stool
And firmament, His resting bar
But still, He was lease from oven into a weed boutique

Sometimes skin is a sin on it own
But God was puke in this skin
& in skin was corrections built by Him
Bringing all death into past
And swelling up all lives into words worthiness

Bitterness is a living thing among souls
Even when we sit on thrones
But it’s a burnt particles after the salvation birth
As all yoke is broken and swept by the sweat and wept He made
Even from his beget stand.
