The ascending ones submerge their great long. To take as they please. Winds whisper stories of the ages. And use the leaves of the trees to shape their consonants. Their words cool my burning. The Lampyridae’s cold light flickers and hang like lanterns in the air. The moon has set early over the horizon.
