Wicked Playground

Demons smoking dreams

Angels playing poker

green felted table

hookahs filled with fantasy

with death

desire

destruction

cards laid and played

moans of ecstasy

cries of defeat.

This is the wonder of Heavell.

A playground

integrated

for sin and virtue.

Not all Angels are virtuous.

Not all Demons are Sinners.

Juxtaposition

Sunset
golden purple
stained with crimson stars
splashed with midnight paint
angels and demons
dancing together
war and peace.
Many breathe
corruption and perfidy
justifying their negligence
while bowing down
and praying for forgiveness.
Many breathe
honor and harmony
obscured by chaos
while standing tall
and refusing all cruelty.
Not all angels wear halos
Not all demons wear horns
Not all praise our Lord
Not all disavow the Devil
sometimes we confuse the two
because of words spoken.
