Free Will

Somewhere beyond the moon,
demons gather,
translucent and beautiful

they are perjurious and frenzied adherents
to their hollow doctrine

their collective articles of faith
devoid of admirable quality

their sect, en masse, expecting piety
because they are splendid looking.

Such paralyzing glamour
versus our ungainly bodies

yet we possess the greater cosmic power,
that of our own spiritual liberty.
