The man without eyes
sees nothing. Sees something
source—a figure obscuring.
Sees it vacillate—gaunt form
forth. Sees only the stymying
shadow of it—shrouding focal point--
Coroner notes TOD.
Syndrome—combo of factors—difficult say.
Stheno animates—the man an effigy.
The Harpy snatches health from stone.
The Graeae pries tooth by tooth.
The Gorgon sees—the Scylla devours.
The girl sits stitched and sewn--
his eyes in a hand—his hand in the other.
She whispers thanks—obliged.
Ears pricked—he listens.
Am I hearing this?
