Take this bone, this ivory,
This slender pyramid, this spear,
This walking stick, this cornucopia,
This twisted Instrument of fear,
This mammoth tusk, this pearly horn,
This mythic spike, this maiden’s bier,
This denticle, this rib of time,
This alabaster harrow—here
We start the beast, we give it name,
That world will never be the same.
