    To you
    the man with the grasping hands
    and the taste of my childhood in his belly.
    I hope that hell exists
    so I can imagine you
    burning eternally to a crisp.
    You better hope that the Devil is fast
    cuz you don’t want me to find you faster.
    He and I with so much in common
    I betcha he too remembers wings
    and runs the faster for it.
    I’ll stoke this new fire for ya
    just in case
    so there’s no confusion
    when you need something to keep you warm
    the next time we meet.
    wooo, doggy.
    Boy, you better run
    the Devil don’t like unauthorized impersonation,
    we all have standards, dontcha know?
    And you broke the rules,
    you didn’t come with hooves and horns
    or any of the proper warning signs
    just normal things like jeans and scuffed sneakers.
    In horror movies there’s always at least
    a birthmark shaped like an inverted pentagram
    or something,
    but reality gave nothing,
    not even a warning soundtrack with minor chords,
    just the un-rapturous thundering of my own heart
    as I learned early a lesson that came too late,
    that the devil that you know
    looks just like anyone you know,
    the birthmark just a mole
    underpants dingy
    and his hands so cold.
