Santa Cruz area

Greetings, traveler, from Ann Wycoff, who lives near Santa Cruz, California where feline eyes glitter in dark places between monstrous red trees, where occult apes lurk with unseen tread and unclean purpose, where sacrifices to forgotten devils lie drowned, profaned, forgotten in stygian waters.

Do you like me pine for steaming jungles within the island kingdom of the imagination, where
where beats the heart of savage drums, and there live philosophic yet murderous crustaceans, shattered robots, buried sacrifices to forgotten devils, and dark countries yet unfounded?

If so then hail and well met, fellow traveler!
