    when the devil beats his wife

    when the devil beats his wife—

    mmone

    i stare from windows
    perplexed indefinitely
    wondering about the world

    society equating pains thru—
    ******** that can’t be justified—

    like when—
    the devil beats his wife—


    how do YOU equate ya pain?

    Eyes*(I) scream
    Youths*(you’s) scream
    We all scream—

    But—
    Trouble deaf heaven watches—
    Like when the devil be beating his wife—
    Watching—
    Like i be watching—

    The devil beating his wife...

    sean...

    i was with you...and feeling this, 'til you said "Trouble deaf heaven watches—" then, you threw me. but that's just a difference of opinion.

    an interesting flow.

    peace.

    to the people who read me...

    BALLER. my point in stating that heaven is "trouble deaf" in the poem is to show how appaling and shocking this act of nature is...a sunshower just pops up on ya sometimes...i wasn't trying to make some kind of stirring juxtapositional entendre with God and the devil... it just came out that way...sorry if i threw you... and I appreciate the read.

    GQ. thanks for smellin me on this. you always bring us the poetis REAL. I just try to give it back to everyone who gives it to me. one.

    sean.
