SciFi Gnoetry | .8

Happy Thursday; time for some SciFi Gnoetry, because it has been too long. Let’s get right to it.


.8 A field of water betrays the spirit

As I doubted if the man
(civilized, more elevated)
by a chain of small ponds
& dead, of course,
used every variety of force,
there seemed to form
enchanted woods around
while his guides squatted near
in a stocking behind the stars.
And then.

(I had seen many before
though most of the interments
were the same:
a full day of queerness and horror.)

A shivering gargoyle;
I became infected with
The Terror
which seemed to mark him
for having been.

Astonished by the assembled human shape,
I knew, yet
my alert was solemn,
heart of the Supreme Tribunal
in my bosom still:
“Luncheon at Ellston”.

I like this one, because it introduced me to a bunch of new elements of the story (almost none of which I have figured out yet, naturally).

    Killer. Inspired me to spend half the night playing the “Necromonicon” card game.
