Jesus had a black dog, I had a daughter

jesus said

what’s you doing hiding in the water
where the tub is white and hard
and your daughter sleeps in the other room

I went into
the brown room where
the blue rug and
the black dog

fell to sleeping on the round blue rug,
where me,
the black dog,
the nightmaring,
that lantern-head horse,
where daughter first made mountains of moons.
