Interview with the Devil
Sometimes it's too damn easy.
I prefer the challenge of the hard-headed,
those with convictions, those sitting at the feet
of God. Sure, it takes more time and energy, a certain deceit
to break their wills, but once you have them at their last shred
of hope, tripping them into sin—an affair with the neighbor, a robbery,
one final drink of blood—that gives me a rush beyond
any frigging miracle. It's hard to explain
what a soul feels like in the palm of your hand.
It glows. Some nights, I look up to the stars, stand-
ing on the roof of a burning house and smile. I think of Cain,
my greatest feat, and feel truly blessed in this oblivion.
