Devil Log

The presence

of the devil

in a house

is like

Manila today,

hot and humid

feverish

with the grime

of evil intent.

 

It violates

my nostrils

with its soot

and brings me

viruses

more virulent

than vitriol

devouring

yesterday’s phlegm.

 

May God send

His cold wind,

Sweeping it away

 

Forever.
