What He Is or What He Ain’t

Sometimes you meet a fellow
by whom you are transfixed –
as if he’d mixed constituents of Soul

into an unaccustomed bowl –
and made its dips and twists seem level.
Some call this fellow “Devil.”

But others say he’s colored
by a different sort of paint.
They call him “Saint.”

You don’t know
what he is
or what he ain’t.
