It began when they come took me from my home. And put me in Dead Row, Of which I am nearly wholly innocent, you know. And I'll say it again. I began to warm and chill. Interpret signs and catalogue. A blackened tooth, a scarlet fog. The walls are bad. Black. They are sick breath at my hind. They are sick breath gathering at my hind.
