Artistic Demon, Ishaisms, Poetry

Holy Unholy

They preached all answers lay in the lap of Heaven;
they warned against any unholy liaison and alliance.

The way had been spelled out in scriptures and commands;
no deviation would be welcome, no dissent, no demands…

Said keep your eyes on the road, and your heart with the divine –
follow this one rule, for all things good and benign…

And when you pray, tell each day, of how all sins you have shunned…
Oh but I pray, to justify, my friendship with the demon…

Dedicated to the ‘artistic demon’.

  1. Your pact with the artistic demon is undeniable and compelling! It brings forth unexpected pearls when night time windows are closed and curtains drawn in far off lands. When candles are extinguished your words and doodles bring delight to dimming eyes hereabouts.

  3. Once again…this is paradoxical…A directive through and through…The explanation first, than a requirement, but hold fast…the practice is not what it was intended for. The submission with a grin of deception. This was masterful!
