  Cover Issue 12 HALI (BYSELF)


A shoreless, boundless sea

Kicked up by the cold storm

Swallowing the ivory tower.

A shoreless, boundless sea

Hiding hunting serpents and

Gaunt faces in the chaos

Kicked up by the cold storm,

An explosive transformation

Beckoning the end of ages,

Swallowing the ivory tower,

The tower of Babel, our folly,

To the sound of beating drums.

In a house of mirrors the yellow king

Harrows sixty-nine reflected tiers.
