There Is A Demon Downstairs He Says His Name Is Mike

After discussion
and observation
we have concluded

his true
moniker
is Mephistopheles.

We had our suspicions when
we spied him chain-smoking
in the garden at night.

He would invite
his friends over
attorneys and art critics

obvious claimants
to the vast landscape
of Hades.

Our fears
were confirmed
when the pit arrived

hottest day
on recent record
spare the air

and flames shooting
heavenward.
The grim menagerie

huddling close
shivered
as the smoke

billowed up
and was blown
into our apartment

possessing our domain.
