“Take refuge in the eyes of crows!”

There is a land where nobody sleeps
not far off – buried in a morning’s grave
the necessity of tenderness laid beneath
a body protests on two knees.

He saw a girl that cried too much,
her life from the knife of monster earth
creatures that wait to keep us quiet
the kiss of a prowl to tie each mouth.

Careful! They sniff the living!
Who rushes out will fall down
broken bones into skeletal corners
the brittle-rattle where creatures creep
the depth of tombs as flesh once did
pain feeds pain and teeth lay thick.

Whosoever is found
will be carried on their shoulders
stalking the earth looking for others
to prey on those who have warm veins.

Take refuge in the eyes of crows!
No one is asleep here,
bad omens have marks where ribs were torn!

The watchman is watching
in silent shoes
he peers into things from the corner of his eye
snakes with waiting tongues
here to feed again
a fang comes closer to her nervous ear. . .

“Be careful out there
we’re waiting where no one’s sleeping
the mummified have shoulders
death sits upon them
red-eyed saliva
with moonlight’s rabid poison
in the hunt for skulls
groping for flesh
to chew on blood.”

Be careful! No one is sleeping here!

Omens have marks where ribs are torn.

“The host is rushing ‘twixt night and day”

The host is riding from Knocknarea
And over the grave of Clooth-na-Bare;
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away:
Empty your heart of its mortal dream.
The winds awaken, the leaves whirl round,
Our cheeks are pale, our hair is unbound,
Our breasts are heaving, our eyes are agleam,
Our arms are waving, our lips are apart;
And if any gaze on our rushing band,
We come between him and the deed of his hand,
We come between him and the hope of his heart.
The host is rushing ‘twixt night and day,
And where is there hope or deed as fair?
Caoilte tossing his burning hair,
And Niamh calling Away, come away.

“The Hosting of the Sidhe” by W. B. Yeats

The Spider’s Web

So many goodies coming up this month. I LOVE OCTOBER! I LOVE HALLOWEEN! The focus of this blog is two items just released from Merlific, fitted mesh lingerie for anyBODY and cute and creepy shoes for The Mad Circus 3. The shape, hair and lip applier will be featured in separate blogs respectively, but they were perfect to show off Merlou’s creations.

The spider, dropping down from twig, 
Unfolds a plan of her devising, 
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.

And all that journey down through space, 
In cool descent and loyal hearted, 
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.

Thus I, gone forth as spiders do 
In spider’s web a truth discerning, 
Attach one silken thread to you 
For my returning.
