i am walking late at night when a man jumps out of the shadows & grabs me by the hair. i pull a small knife out of my pocket. then i stab myself in the mouth, cheeks, and eyes. blood blooms from my face & falls to the ground. the man is so repulsed that he runs away. the moon turns into a horse & carries me home on her back.
