I’m the angel in the cupboard.
The bone in your soup.
in a valley of crimson.
Yes, but who are you really?
I’m the one the stars threw away.
It was winter –
where we’re from, it’s always winter.
But who are you?
Me? I’m the fool they blame
whenever the power goes out
and winds play havoc.
I’m the one who invented
the evenings you won’t remember –
Stop! Who are you?
I’m the past devouring the future.
