#1800

I wake with salt water in my throat and Charybdis curling my tongue, so thirsty I feel like I’m going crazy, I need to swallow the sea, swallow the world.

Charybdis. 

Charybdis.

Charybdissss…

I wonder – if you were changed back, returned to the fair body for which you longed, would you be happy? Or would the insatiable beast still live inside you, like the woman lived inside the beast for so many millenia?

I think you would dream of shipwrecks. I think you would wake with blood between your teeth.
