i am that i am decided that cupid would be the new lamb

And plunged out the little Cherub’s soul 

and fed it to all the Archangels. They vomited the sweet poison 


down from the heavens, waking all the Images of God 

up from Lucifer’s grace-filled sleep—his soft-voice lullaby,


“true love means you will never have to suffer,” 

once again, broken.
