“But one afternoon, when I was half asleep, and was being fanned by two of her maids, I heard one say to the other, “What a pity it is that our mistress no longer loves our master! I believe she would like to kill him if she could, for she is an enchantress.”

– “The Young King of the Black Isles”


the leaves are rotting
under the snow –
yet you don’t see
my poison
through your lust


“I’m a lover not a fighter and I don’t want to have to get rough
I’m just warning you ahead of time
I can be a bitch when it comes to my stuff.”

      I owe you an email.
