Beauty first sets eyes on Beast

Olivia McCannon’s description of the first encounter:


I have no words for what I see                               

appearing from this scenery of

supernatural wealth – must 

process chthonic splendour rigged

with glowing eyes and claws, 

clothed in the violated cosmos                  

spiked with satellites and artificial stars

needing time and having none

I lift beyond my body

leave a dress

  1. So opulent, so powerful, jewel like despite the blood stained teeth. The terror. ‘I lift beyond my body’! Phew. This is on a different level. Well done to both of you!

  2. Truly scarey…I had to look away BUT then come back to stare, look, explore & see the beauty.
    Thankyou for the most unusual Monday morning I’ve had in an age.
