In the heaven of these hours
As I rise from chalk outlines
Chiseled on concrete 

To be as the two
Divided halves
Of the moon 

Half a fag
Beneath black skin
Living so close 

To Burnside
Where they beat
And sodomized 

That Hispanic boy
For trying
To join their gang 

I hope to become wholly
A man in ecstasy
As I am in agony 

Movin mong the moonlight
Like ashes tossed from urn to wind
In the heaven of these hours
