Title: The Devil IS in the Detail

Not sure how you do it
But your timing is impeccable
No one's unfallible
It seems.
In dreams
I get down
Then someone takes my hand
and tries to understand.
They sympathize
They're kind.
Weird.
I always feared that
In reality
It would be like this
And it is.
Just cruel
Detachment.
IcE CoLD
In Fact.
No tact.
No quiz
about why.
Just cry
at your peril.
The devil's within
YOU.
The devil's within
us all.
The devil
IS
chomping at the bit.
Yum Yum
Enjoying
The Tasty
Bit
of
our
HELL.
Might
as well
Acknowledge
As we do.
The devil is in the detail
The detail is in the devil.

Hell is knowing.
Hell is NOT knowing.


I'll be going


soon.
