IT'S JUST THOSE ANGELS
I have angels pounding in my head at the moment. Everywhere I think, there are angels. But not those christian ones, not the head boy/head girl ones. There are other angels, older, wiser, darker. These are angels with limp, aged leather wings, wings that drape and spool at their calloused feet, angels with hard, dense rutted horns, angels with flickering black glistening tongues, tongues that will slide as easily through a truth as they will through a lie. There will be more angels to follow...as there always is.
