When Angels Deserve to Die

VI: When Angels Deserve to Die
Allen glares at Road.
She has held him for nineteen

Locked in a steel cage,
Wires attached to his great
White wings.

Dried and fresh blood, and sweat.

But, it's not good enough,
He won't break.
She doesn't like this.
She can't figure it out
She pondered this for many
Months.
Then, an idea came to her.
So one night,
She took him from his cage
And ripped his wings off with wire.
The left one came off at the
Tip-base,
Same with the right one.
The exorcist angel screamed a blood-filled cry.
His wings lie on the cold, stone floor,
Void of life.
