Desire

Desire

The Devil makes you an offer every day
again and again
that you should be his,
and then your life
will change to gold.

And your sufferings
will cease in an instant,
and you will get everything you want
happiness and time
endless time.

His desire for you doesn’t gobble
you all up at once;
it eats little pieces of you
one at a time
day by day.

And when you reject his desire,
you are destroyed
by the cessation
of the morphine drip.
