Fear of the Dark
You'd think darkness would be a friend, having spent more than 3/4 of my waking life during the wee hours. 
If there was an official Maximus motto it might be "the sun is trying to kill me!" or "daylight? what's that?" or possibly "pants are for losers".  I seriously cannot remember the last time a whole day was spent outside beneath Sol's rays; it's been that long. But that's okay... owls and other nocturnal beasties do just fine under the cover of darkness.
But still, I fear it sometimes. Night is when the veil between real and unreal softens, when Things walk among us that normally stay away. I'm pretty sure this all started thousands of years ago before the invention of night-vision goggles and 24 hour Wal-Marts, but it's still true now. How many horror stories can you think of started out, "it was a bright and sunny day"?
I realized this personal disconnect -- my love for the night alongside my superstitious fear -- as a young adult. It came to a head when I moved into m

he reads to her, tells her what it was like to be a sailor of the seas on the moon. "don't stop talking," she tells him, dozing off, imagining the seas of zephyr. 
spyglass on the moon a million miles away, the ether shatters by a little girl on her toes, standing on her mattress, clinging to her window above. stain glass eyes in the wake of moon and she breathes as the sea slamming onto the pane, receding and reaching; clouding and clearing. her breaths reach the moon and the moon reaches back with her hands pressed to the girl's eyes.

 . des passages .
Every thing is change; ocean waves and washed away sands where once children played. The tracks of wolves passing, wet printed along a shore; the bits of lettered sentiments blown down emptied modern streets. These are the left behind sign signals of what passed, and is now departing, leaving something ancient born again in the wakes of thrashed waters.
It went easily, a few quickly exchanged words, some rapid imagery, and then a fast-kept silence moving in so quickly not even breath could be caught. ' keep constant, keep quiet and to yourself, keep in motion ' The Taking Down proceeds in a hurly burly dance, accompanied by message checks, loud music, caffeination and nicotine addiction, coughing fits and sweated arm pits. Moments of reflection and a list that grows longer by the moment.
