MONSTERS AND MAGIC | The Incantation

It does not require a full moon. No
newts’ eyes unless you can get them cheap, nothing
seasoned dried smoked or
measured. Only this: It requires

a story, a teller, and a monster
to be overcome. It requires
a secret. This is why (they say) witches
are women. All those words
carried sharp in throat-back told since birth
never to tell, but witches
do. This is why (they say) witches
drip wicked. This is why (they say) witches are just
no good. When it comes to witches, men
will say anything, so

put some blood into it, and by blood I mean every razor word
they ever tried to cram back down your throat. Say

no. Say it
again. This is (witches know)
the only formula for magic.

MONSTERS AND MAGIC | Death Is The Maiden

Which is to say she has bigger things to worry about than fucking. Virginity’s such a human concept, anyway, and who needs romance when you’ve got bones? Every creature who’s ever died has left behind a skeleton, and the past few millennia have left her a lot of toys. She builds cathedrals out of them. Not to anyone, mind; she doesn’t believe in much but herself. She doesn’t have to.

Still, Death can be kind. She’s not the bureaucrat they make her out to be. Look for her out of the corner of your eye - she’s there at the end of every story, carrying white roses for all the nameless corpses. Death is a maiden, but we’ll all be hers in the end.
