i am demeter's daughter
come from the underground
to see the sea and stars

i have known the devil
intimately;
my body was snakelike
in an old dance for submission -

he tamed the unkindness
that brewed inside,
ah he is but trickery and flattery, but my darling
if you ever saw him -
you would think of the archangels
singing, alleleuia, you are home
forever and ever

amen
