This is a repeat of a lot of the same imagery and even lines but, very early this morning she was back. She was back and I can’t say no, especially when she was gone for so long. Manticore is awake.

Now sleep
But every dream is a staircase
And I’m counting the descent
And at the bottom
something wants to eat me
And I am the thing at the bottom

Farther down is a man
And that man
Has blood
That burns
Like Autumn glory

And I
Am so
Very hungry

Somewhere far away
The clocks are winding
The indigo is waking
The black waters stir
