Night Thoughts

part of: Purest Conjecture

by Teresa Dunyati-Long

Evil lives one place only:
between our neurons pumping out thought
in a particularly nasty
me first manner. Everyone pays. That’s how you know
evil
when you see it, taste it,
smell it, you know?

That’s good, because that means
if we slay evil
in our own minds
we slay it everywhere else, trust me,
it does happen that way.
