He picked a bone up under the lighthouse.
It had been used as candle stand.
He noticed a name carved.
He has a human candle at home.
Melting fat with old bones
Fire on dead hair
Scarlet flame from eye holes.
Spiders are eating skulls
Spiders’ nests make a skull chain.
Durosimi grows eight legs
and laughs at himself.
It is a bone black magic.

If you’d like to spend more time with Durosimi and his spiders, there’s a 4.5k short story for everyone who backs the kickstarter – if we hit our first stretch goal. The piece above and the short story were written in parallel, and it is thanks to Abbey that the story has so many spiders in it! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hopelessmaine/hopeless-maine-the-graphic-novel-by-tom-and-nimue-brown/)
