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
