And I dwelt for a time
in the House of Lilith
and asked her
"Out of Darkness,
how did you build this place?
How did you make clothes?
How did you grow food?"

And Lilith smiled and said,
"Unlike you, I am Awake.
I see Threads that spin
all around you. I make that
which I need out of Power."

"Awaken me, then, Lilith," I said.
"I have need for this Power.
Then, I can make my own
clothes,
make my own food,
make my own House."
