Hello Auntie Yuli!

It's me, I'm coming to stay with you in America for a while! Oh, I'm so excited! Ummh, I hope that's okay? Pwl says it is. He is kewl for a crusty ol' raven, but there are too many things a bird _cannot_ understand, though he does try hard. I was so little when I was there last, but I'm a big strong ghoul now! And I've got another tooth coming through, look, right at the back do you want to see it? People still run away from me though. Will you teach me to talk goth? Will people talk to me then?

Lotsa love, Beastly

Hi Auntie!

Can we go to the Magic Theatre? Please! What does *Theatre* mean? Why is it spelled in such a silly way? I know all the other words. My teeth are growing good and sharp and strong for rending and tearing yummy-fresh corpses! Pwl-Raven sent me a black quill and some ink for my birthday. It's difficult and smudgy though. I prefer a plastic ballpoint pen or my own 'puter. Am I a hallucination? Please tell me.

Seeya! Lotsa Luv from Beastly.

NP: ======================================================
I saw a neon sign reflected in a pool of liquid sky
It was not what I expected I was only walking by
The sign said to the magic theatre
It is not for everyone
It is but for madmen only the first performance has begun
I looked up to see that notice where the lights were
shining from
Nothing but blank wall was there
and their reflection too was gone
Maybe it was only an hallucination
I'm no stranger to such things
