This creature, the devil, was the lover of God,
then man, then forsaken utterly by both.
It died of sorrow.
From this substance was squeezed a child
with one arm, one ear, one mouth, two hearts
( one inner, one outer ), a vestigial tail.
This is another version,
told by an old woman.
The birth of snuff.
A truth as deep any truth.
