Matthew is God's gift to womankind:
A superb lover, with a taste for adoration.
The swarthy, chiseled looks, the boxy chest,
The dazzling teeth ... well, you know the rest ...
However, like us all, he craves salvation.
Each soul split off from God is fearful, blind;
What Matthew seeks, he knows he cannot find.
