a Devil and a Deity


There is a beast
in me who quakes
to be worshipped.
Its deep rumbling
cracks the temple
of me and I wait
to crumble beneath it.

Over the last 24 years I have had some wonderful health care and guidance, and unfortunately I have been subjected to criminal, diabolical and perverted conduct hijacking the positions in our society that are typically the privilege of quite the opposite.

I'd love to hear from you.
