Image for the poem The Deal

The Deal

The deal is made to coexist
with the monsters of the id
become a comfort in the end
with madness ready to descend

abhorrent in the face of light
still inclinations find delight
shame put aside to exist
for a moment of guilty bliss

mixing passions with a taint
perversion without due constraint
chains are released with the consent
with actors sharing the same bent

behind closed doors all is game
a contract made without blame
divorced from judgment of sanity
corruption seeped in vanity.
