Nathan swallowed and continued to stare at him. Alton's expression never changed, as if he was waiting for him to do something, so the writer straightened and took a deep breath. "Well, I did," he said, trying to stay calm. "And I think, after that, you owe me some answers."
The devil raised one eyebrow and the corner of his mouth twitched. "Do I?"
"Yes." Nathan nodded, his confidence growing. "What is going on here?

last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods

to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
