“The anagkok teaches him to isolate himself in a lonely place—beside an old grave, by a lake—and there to rub two stones together while waiting for a significant event. ‘Then the bear of the lake or the inland glacier will come out, he will devour all your flesh and make you a skeleton, and you will die. But you will recover your flesh, you will awaken, and your clothes will come rushing to you’”

Eliade, Mircea. Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy
bonechild &
i am the body
i am the flesh
you to me
graveyard we
i hear you calling
i feel you clawing
i taste your shade
i see i see
four winds take me
scattered by
the breeze
bonechild &
come over sea
