Electric Djinn

He takes his place
with a precociousness
that makes him little more than camera
the thing that does not matter

the struggle for a particular demon
the demon of light that warbles
in and out of existence;
it runs between the raindrops

the smell of burning witches-
some new perfume
brought over from the Demon-Haunted world-

He finds himself so inexplicably happy.

-for Carl Sagan
