The land -
the beautiful land -
has deceived us -

hidden a fire demon in its belly.

I hear him
as I lay my head on the pillow.
Thomp, thomp,
outside the window.

RAAHRR, he roars,
and the ground twists and trembles.

I know,
as I lie in the dark,
that he's inside my room now.

I know before I turn my head
that he's waiting,
burning eyes and pointed teeth,
