Devil by Laszlo Aranyi

Art work by Emily Kray (https://emilykray.com/)

His cramped fingers are fiery columns

concluding in claws.

One of them spears the uterus of heaven,

it slides inside his puggish,

thickened asshole.

What’s perceptible is the living spiderweb tissue.

The Old Hoofed Devil starts to dance.

Fat, clumsy people awed,

who wear down the confessional,

the walrus-faced inquisitor is leafing through

Johann Weyer's 'Pseudomonarchia Daemonum'

Our reflection backs up screaming

finally, a smoke and fart ridden cave-chimney swallows it.

During motionlessly cleaned,

wakeful summer nights we conjure

the coiled snake that is searching for its own tail,

the snow white, winged bull,

nurse Sekhmet, the howling wolves in the dilated night,

the scorpions of the already cold moon, the phalanx of the stone


horse-shaped people…

The Lady ties a faint wreath of flowers

that is wet from the saliva

of a snail

to the meek goat's horns.

A stone idol is carved in the place of the Almighty,

(and plastic pipes cut to size).

The peasant dumbly, blindly, deafly copulates

(the whole Universe tastes like fox, smells like muck,

feels like frozen tin plates, nevertheless)

for the approaching violin music

the Old Hoofed Devil starts dancing again.
