The Night

The Night

Here then are three worlds – night, day and the night within the night. Here are the passions and aspirations of the dead, moving freely among us with malevolence and power. Here is a world of open graves. Here is a world where our imagery breaks down. We have no names, no shapes, no lights, no colours to fill out these powers, and yet they are as persuasive as the living.
