The Daemon

A sapient legend from the Orient
tells us that the spirits of evil power
lie imprisoned in the ocean’s night,
sealed in by the hand of an anxious god.


But my father broke away the seal.
He did not see the rising breath of evil.

He let the daemon soar into the world.

A. Haushofer, Moabit Sonnets
