A Serpente



I’m what persists. I shall transform myself into the serpent which no man knows and no god can see. The garden of Eden and the temptation of flesh. Village of the damned, children from outer space with a common plan. Pinocchio, a wooden toy trying to become a child and grow up like one. Alice brought the looking glass. Please step inside.
