If you're uninvested, it will show. In my case, I've been fascinated by the grotesque and the macabre ever since I can remember. I don't really know why that should be—I didn't live in a house that featured much in the way of inspirational materials for such interests—but I cleaved to everything that bore the faintest tang of the uncanny.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blew sand in my face.
You, / star-garlanded; clouds / your laughing breath.
