Schilodiri de vis natang


“The Scavenger’s Daughter was invented as an instrument of torture in the reign of Henry VIII by Sir William Skevington (also known as William Skeffington), Lieutenant of the Tower of London. It was an A-frame shaped metal rack to which the head was strapped to the top point of the A, the hands at the mid-point and the legs at the lower spread ends; swinging the head down and forcing the knees up in a sitting position so compressed the body as to force the blood from the nose and ears. The Scavenger’s Daughter was conceived as the perfect complement to the Duke of Exeter’s Daughter (the rack) because it worked the opposite principle to the rack by compressing the body rather than stretching it.” –


Cand te-am aflat
zaceai crispat,
n-aveai corabii
de inecat.
Lacrimi puse pe profit
ti-au luat ochii si-au fugit,
ganduri trandave
te striveau pe ura
trecandu-ti pielea uda
prin roata de tortura,
dar vorbele miloase
stateau imbratisate
pe trupul tau ca o aura
platind dumnezei cu pacate.
Din palma te-am hranit
cu flama, verb, cu mine
iar tu-ti infigi in somnul meu coltii,
ma acoperi cu regrete din tine.
