Ridin' the Road to Hell

". . . You're standin' next to the devil... you're ridin' a road to hell. . ."
-Benny Perkins

swing the door open
offer me a ride

no time to waste
I will
drop you

If I told you
I was the devil
and stared into you
woke your fear fires
kissed your demons
feather your specters to flight
paint your failures 
to memory

you'd die
here exhausted
on this road
that pushes away
to hell

and I'd stand here
near to your carcass
for the next ride
