Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A contest entry elsewhere to write about first few words of each sentence in three stanzas
In the dark stubble of my mind
The fire of Hades
Burns a clear patch
With love for you

Patterned by scars and self-made tattoos
As a reminder of all our suffering
The Earthly opponent
We only believe to have left in stasis

It slips past the doorway towards Hell
Shut tightly on what we call Purgatory
Until you open some windows
For an ending more like death
