Demons, micropoetry by Bernard Gabriel Okurut at
Illustration by Louis Breton, engraved by M. Jarrault (Astaroth, prince of Hell)



written by: Bernard Gabriel Okurut



In the night, I wrestle
With my demons.
In the day, I conceal them
In a smile.
I embrace bitterness
And hide ugliness.
Like a dissembler, I act.
Though deep inside,
I wrestle
Twenty thousand and three
I hope you don’t become
The twenty thousand and fourth.
