Summary: What happens when you trap a Padomaic in a library for far too long.


Rocks are piled high in the library door, and I can see the collapsed ceiling behind them. There's a skeleton seated in a nearby chair, an arrowhead caught on his ribcage. I taste blood on my lips, and smell it from three battered bodies in front of me.

Go unto as a friend. Memories as broken-Aka shards, snapped bones in a ghost fence. Blood-stained dust of the children of the not ancestors.

I'm trapped in here. Can you help me? Truth/lie twist the web sideways before it snaps; the I of the turn evaporates with a cut thread.

Almost through. Rocks deep as god's blood rumble as they did when the heart-crowned tower fell. Torch burns light into the dirt, arms cross over my eyes not my own.

Who are you? Tower-born scion of the Changed Ones unchanging. Line-ender, corruption's daughter to the Webspinner promised.

Are you alrig- Mirror my body upon their throats. Mask Vile returned, price paid, poor bargain struck for every turn of the Magnus-child-chasmed Lunar Lattice.

Library is left with its tales of Walk-Like-This and split-this-not and the unmade Leaper unmaking. Of cats that walk as dragons, secret syllables and words circling the [NUMINIT] centered. An I where IS holds.

For now, the path is the dance of SithisNot, the birth-death blackened hands creating the silence that will be filled.

Poetry cast on the interplay of the vast Maybe.

So MK. Delicious. They should put this poem as a warning page for The Imperial Library ;)

Awww, thanks. I was worried no one would get it, tbh. Very glad someone did.
