swamp witch: she exists in the southern mud and cypress roots. she boils the blood of crocodiles and muskrats and her fingers are singed with swamp gas and moist wood fires. her god is the mist and the murk and the gloom trails from her like a bride’s train dipped in mud.
"Like a Siren in the twilight, she passes over sand dune and foamy wave as the sea mist carries her in from places unknown. She saunters like a dream, hovering aimless as if the world is her own until riding the winds and its wails as the darkness fades and she is no more."
