Could Hozier put this to music or no

The Moon & Her Judas

August 5, 2019

PROMPT: Lunar Phrases

I heard a gospel today; she was here. 
Among the pews, drenched in holy water,
the communion wine staining her lips
tears of blood a miracle on her cheeks. 

I sent a spaceship to reach her: I was
the intrepid astronaut who sang her
hymns and clasped her hands in prayer, kneeling
at the alter, blessed by her silver eyes,

grey skin, ribs craters on the curves of her
body that no man had gone before.
I crucified her at night when no stars could hear her screams.
Flowers were my nails, pride my hammer.
Honey was my whip, a smirk my spear. 

I went to her and then left her in the ground,
it wasn’t a giant leap for me.
I tried to be horny and feral and tender and sacrilegious like Hozier but tbh I have no idea what this is
