teacher:

        Death by a visitation from God
        Death by a visitation from God



student:

        I am shadow



teacher:

        Things material and spiritual



student:

        Maternal



teacher:

        can be heavy



student:

        Suffocating



teacher:

        There are seven iron lamps
        which illumine our senses



student:

        Seven knives



teacher:

        Seven iron lamps to illumine our senses
        and seven bells to celebrate the resurrection



student:

        Two marble balls in a sack
        one long and slender candle
        one mouth
        two reckonings
        Consternation and treachery



teacher:

        Are you listening
        Are you listening to me
        Are you paying attention to me



student:

        I am shadow



teacher:

        Seven iron lamps
        seven oboes
        two small balls
        and one tiny candle



student:

        Tiny candle



teacher:

        One pathetic flame
        embers dying



student:

        Dying



teacher:

        Five creatures from the monolith
        seven whispers from the catacombs
        five and seven numbing mumbling speeches
        Are you listening



student:

        I am drawn to do what I should not



teacher:

        Guilty, guilty, guilty guilty
        no, no, never never no
        seven mornings
        thirteen moons
        five wolves
        one silk spread morning
        seven bells for seven senses
        each one lusting lusting



student:

        Guiltily



teacher:

        Two milk fed glands ripe and red tipped
        Are you listening my little mouse
        Each sense ripped from its bodice
        each gland primed to its overflow
        Do you hear me my little mouse man
        Do you hear me little cock



student:

        Semen



teacher:

        Are you listening
        My little tumescence smear



student:

        Ligeia
        I stand on the edge and am drawn to it
        Guilt
        I am shadow
