I Look Down

from my window
I look down, look down
at the iniquitous world spread out below me
I look down, look down
I see foul, curst creatures, but they don’t see me

from my room
I look down, look down
into the caliginous night steeped in midnight tea
I look down, look down
I see ravenous malignancy, but it doesn’t see me

from my prison
I look down, look down
at a haunting of ghosts, ghouls, and monstrous afreets
I look down, look down
I see all things vile and evil…and pray they don’t see me.

      1. I’m not sure how many of the second year episodes there were… aparrently 39 on the CW channel. Apparently there is a season 3 but I stopped after season 1. Enjoy.

        ‘The upcoming fourth season of the CW’s “Nancy Drew” series will be its last. A premiere date has yet to be announced. The teen mystery drama premiered in 2019 and follows Nancy (Kennedy McMann) as she solves mysteries — both earthbound and supernatural — in her haunted hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine.’

        ‘Nancy Drew, a mystery series starring Kennedy McMann, Tunji Kasim, and Alex Saxon is available to stream now. Watch it on The CW, HBO Max, Vudu, Prime Video or Apple TV on your Roku device.’
