A description of the experience
The Kingdom of Uncertainty
The department head leans forward and draws an X
and her earrings sway like the sword of Damocles.
As a spotted butterfly becomes invisible against the meadow
the demon slips in and merges with the opened newspaper.
A helmet with nothing inside has taken power.
The mother turtle escapes flying under the water.
