My Father gifted me the painting of Collier's Lilith, Feared as a female night being,
A grasp around the snake neck devil;
She nests the great owl.
Responsive to many names: Night Spectre
She is all of these and more.
In each sacred place, there she sits on a wooden branched throne.
The trunk of the knowledge tree has been manifested into the superior.
In her presence, wildcats meet with desert beasts, She is the haunting of the many as the angel of death. Poisoning single cherries.
