I've passed that little black building
down on the corner so many times
and I often wondered
if anyone lived there.

It looked like an empty dwelling
with its cracked facade
dusty windows
curtains withdrawn
no lights
no signs of anything.

I talked to jewel about it
she had the same idea
that old guy
that always
hangs out
outside
the liquor store
next door
(roeghmann)
told me he'd once seen the devil
in one of those windows up there
blowing him a kiss.

He has a certain (almost eerie)
look on his face as he said it
as if he'd actually seen the dark lord
'said he'd seen him
throw trash out of the back window
that he'd been stealing the furniture
from whatever bars
closed down in the neighborhood
but he's an old guy
probably delirious.
so anyway
the other day me and Ricco
decided to break in

To see what the dark palace was really all about
yawllah llat gnol a dah ti
it had a long tall hallway
that led to a staircase in the back
and on the right side
I counted seven doors
