The Devil makes you an offer every day

again and again

that you should be his,

and then your life

will change to gold.

And your sufferings

will cease in an instant,

and you will get everything you want

happiness and time

endless time.

His desire for you doesn’t gobble

you all up at once;

it eats little pieces of you

one at a time

day by day.

And when you reject his desire,

you are destroyed

by the cessation

of the morphine drip.
