Saint Judas

I just got around to listening to “Saint Judas” today (I’m a little behind on my Nine Bullets reading) and I just have to ask you–is this not a kind of wonderful poetry?

I’ve been reading a lot of Devil stories lately, just to make some space for him to show back up in the ghost stories, and I’ve been thinking a lot about him as a literary character. You could say something about the necessity of outsmarting him, but I’m more interested in the idea of him being the semi-divine being we expect to see and interact with.

My thoughts are scattered.

I’m just trying to keep one foot in front of the other, you know?
