From torrin a. greathouse:

November 12, 2021

How convenient
this word, beat, that lives in both the kingdoms

of brutality & song. The singer’s voice: a cry,
a moan, god’s name broken across a blade

of teeth. The riding crop & flog & scourge—
a wicked faith. A blood-loud devotion.

There is no prayer to save me from my flesh.
You can’t have the bible without the belt.

– From Belt Is Just Another Verb for Song
