A dark collection of poetry based on sixteen classic children's fairy tales, reworked into adult stories of desire, violence, lust, and betrayal.
"Come under these wings and listen,
to voices that sing from our bones.
The young ravens full of innocence
as they tear at Prometheus’ gut.
Memory’s shrouded in stories,
a birthright that swaddles our view.
A three-headed dog in ecstasy laps
his master’s handful of dust.
Childhood’s woven from fictions,
a history changed into stone.
A snake writhes in joy in a garden,
devours the child within.
Come under this cloak of protection,
myths of our past made anew,
heroes that murder in kindness,
beasts that step out of their skins.
Come into these woods and listen,
our primal emotions transformed,
those old gods into new royalty,
our fears into slippers and wolves."
