When the clouds go vertical, you know that something's brewing. A witch's salve with a touch of nightshade peppered with flabby leaves found under stumps with white slugs burrowing for darkness.
The salve is applyed with gentle death onto the eyelids. A crone in a girl's frock creating the evening whimsies that rock and cut. Slicing letters through hearts. Weaving stories through thread. Shouting through the hump. The disease. Fiends arise.
Under the croak of summer. The cloak of secrets. The petty wants and fretting needs. A twisted hand reaches from the gravestone.
The Scarlet Letter by Nathanial Hawthorne
