Provocative and alluring, Conjuring Jesus presents a disarmingly fresh portrait of the figure of Jesus. In poems disruptive and devotional, controversial and contemplative, it reveals a man moved by a persistent impulse toward sinuous reshaping and a liberating awareness of his own sexuality.
He could pull a boatload of fish from his sleeve/ and his mother would see only the naive/ little boy whose eyes grew wide/ with tales of wonder and who kept cutting/ his fingers on the edges of the real./ She'd shake her motherly head/ in dismay, and chide him for living/ in a madman's world
