You are not born of man. It was the moon that bore you. Look on your left shoulder and you will find a mark that proves it. Your real father had us open portals all over the world to allow your return. This is the last of them. But we have to make sure that your essence is intact, that you have not become a mortal. You must complete three tasks before the moon is full.

"I realize after her touch
she would know me

years from now, even
in the dark, even

without my skin."
- Phil Memmer, “The Paleontologist’s Blind Date,” from Threat of Pleasure. (via pennyxlane)
