a trumpet blast from the mountaintop... as the man in robes descended upon my mother's house. speaking in a tongue, i thought it was my father's.. it was not. he handed me a box, made of stone. inside a bug, made of wood. and, as per his instructions, i put it in my mouth. however, once there, i found it crawled its way deep inside my eyeball. i reached in with my hand to retrieve it, but once there i found i required a branch, or a stick, or a hand of wood to retrieve such a wooden bug. my hand, made of flesh, was useless for such a task. and so, i retreated to the mountains, the land of my father, with the bug stuck so deep inside my eye i could not see and my hand stuck so deep inside my throat i could not speak. there, blind and hungry, i pondered the wrongs done to me by the man in robes. he had tricked me... but this would not be the end of my story.
