Samples from The Morning I Married the Sky:

go niners or something

if I had a football team

their colors would be

oak-leaf green against

the gold of dry summer

grass about an hour

before sunset and

practice would be

canceled constantly

you don't build up

you don't build up

good works and drag

them in a bag

up to heaven and then

unpack them

before the almighty

for his approval

god is whistling, will

you sing along?
