Thief Among Sleepers

Take away their mirrors and they can’t see. But they can still hear you. I go barefoot among them and try not to breathe. Echoes are merciless in the catacombs.

One drop of poison on their lips is enough. One drop, then I pry out the jewels with my needle.

Hypnos and Thanatos, by John William Waterhouse
