Did you know that beauty comes the death of the
world, a herald of the end? The sky that glows, in colors
both explosive and womanly, is in rapture. The warm
waters rich with death from across the hierarchy that we
swim in will flood our cities soon.
A rose fell victim to the devil’s flattery and asked to be
made useful and was turned into a cabbage.
My beauty is a weapon.
And besides, the devil is a fuckboy supreme,
patriarchy’s very own icy dicked independent contractor.
