Of horns and smiles

The only power wielded by the lost –

is their ability

to deflect, distract and conquer.

They thrive in the forests

of chaos –

that infinite source of sustenance.


The devil will never show you his/her horns –

they will show you their teeth –

they lead with a smile

lulling you

into a false sense of complacency.

And that is the vantage point –

from which

they will wage their assault

on your shores

Harboring hopes

that no one is manning the lighthouse.
