After the demons are tamed
my angels float around like leaves
swirling in the autumn’s dance

After the dance is over
the smell of humid earth penetrates my lungs
and some rotten sadness floods my chest

After I ate a whole box of bonbons
After the demons are tamed
After the dance is over
Come sit with me in darkness…
