[POEM] Untitled

I can write this a story. 

I can give it a pinch of sugar and I’ll make my character angelic, 
in my point of view 
and all other nonsense, not the least ashamed with the fact that when I turn to a mirror, 
all I see is the flame of the devil. 
I can sell it and people will believe and buy it and I’ll get the money for myself 
without giving credit to anyone, 
not even you, 
the oh-so-caring-and-lovely one I might write as 
the antagonist. 

I won’t, though.
