The Time to Choose


Time to choose,

Tiger Lily,

Is nearly here:

The sweet

Or the dark?

The demons that seemed

So glamorous earlier

Will have their pound of sin;

The words that sounded

Once delightful

Have their hooks in you.

Time to choose

Is getting closer

Tiger Lil:

Flight is possible,

Escape is not:

The fine bone fingers

Of the Satan-tango clock

Slide inexorably


Decision o’clock.

    Very haunting and chilling, I hope she chooses right.

      For demons maybe dark and sweet are the same thing

      and, hey she was a figment of my imagination:
      now she’s part of yours –
      you decide
