Satan's Lamb

(written for the Ode to a DU poet, comp)
 
 
 
Peculiar winds blew
on the corner of Set Street
and Loki Lane, while
angels hung
in mid-flight.
 
Even Satan averted his eyes,
red-cheeked,
at what was birthed—
 
a lamb, endless eyed
in deep pools of black, with
cloven pens
for hooves, yet
with a crystalline heart.
 
“I swear I did not do this!”  Satan cried.
 
“He is your lamb!” spat the Angels.
 
Creation groaned
and the lamb turned toward the Devil
and grinned…..
