I sold my soul
  for new meter and rhyme

Trading salvation
  for a thing greater still

The joyous embrace
  of one hell damning phrase

Now immortal, perpetual
  —fulfilled

I sold my soul
  as the Devil laughed

Knowing not, my final words
  were for him

Exposing his lie
  and his legions of hate

My last breath
  —Divinity’s hymn

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
