I’m the angel in the cupboard.

The bone in your soup.

Summer’s wolf

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.
