One way to go in

one way to go out

both narrow.

The door stands ajar

the exit way

angels point

at the clock

over the doorway

fiends block the way

an archangel appears

from the clockface

the devil

gathers his army

 too late

my angel

gives a deadly injection

for new life

to help me leave

quicker by the doorway

which narrows

to just my size

and I push the door open

with  a slow sigh.
