CHILD CORPSE TRIO:
Tender lumplings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare
That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween
- Danny Elfman
I busied myself to think of a story...
one which would speak to
the mysterious fears of our nature
and awaken thrilling horror...
- Mary Shelley
The name-of it-is "Autumn" -
The hue-of it-is Blood -
An Artery-upon the Hill -
A Vein along the Road -
- Emily Dickinson
The town below lay leaved with October blood.
- Dylan Thomas
You like it under the trees in Autumn,
Because everything is half dead.
- Wallace Stevens
I suppose Blake was a revelation [to me],
because here was talk of Camden Town
and Marylebone and angels and demons
all in the same sentence.
- Clive Barker
