some folk keep their demons in the cupboards
some under the stairs
under the bed locked up in pairs
some folk keep their demons in their pocket
others far, far away
some keep their demons locked up
hoping to keep them at bay
I keep my demons ground fine
to add sparkle to my eye shadow
a shimmer to my waterline
their blood a paste to moisturize
and make my skin oh – so – fine
conditioning my hair with demon bile
a jar in the fridge for nail polish
no need to abolish
the sinful little fuckers
if they come for me
I’ll eat them up
munch and bite
demon bone to keep the teeth white
