The Initiation

Each newcomer is given a ring.

The clock on the wall functions so perfectly,

Its hands precisely following their course.

Off in the distance is a beaded curtain.

‘Upon going through that curtain,’ Colme explains,

‘You will truly have become members of our world.’

The Frivolity of the conversation and general atmosphere

Belie the significance of their commitment.

Opaque fog can be seen outside the window,

Separating them from the main road.
