did anyone ever tell you about the world under the skin of the world?
they say those living beneath climb up, sometimes, to our world, and hide in human skins to mix with us. they say those living beneath are different, similar to men in the abstract but not in the details. skin like slime, that slicks and slides in one’s grasp. glowing extremities, flickering in the below. bones that crackle and strain their way out any orifice they can manage. scales like armour, and as beautiful as any opal. eyes that weep gold, no source of wealth below but so effective above.
who are they, anyway?
it’s not for us to say.
but they say these kaiju, these monsters, don’t come from the world under the skin of the world…
or if they do, they have shed humanity entirely.
(they say those beneath the skin are helping us despite our lies. the kaiju kills them as surely as it does us.)
