ivylaughed said: I request entrance to the Birthday Unending. Also, I think I know why people enter the corn maze. I dreamed a perfect dream of summer: roses, blue skies, hot sun, wind, and my favorite flavor of ice cream. I dreamed that if I made it to the middle I would have that moment as long as the ice cream lasted. I do not know if the others had the same dream, as I was born in August and summer is my season. I will hold off as long as I can to enjoy the festivities, but I must admit, I am tempted.
BUT AH, SWEET BIRTHDAY CHILD, THIS IS NOT A SUMMER’S CORN MAZE. IT IS NOT FILLED WITH ROSES, OR BLUE SKIES, OR HOT SUN, OR WIND. IT IS NOT FILLED WITH THE LAUGHTER OF CHILDREN, SAVE IN THAT SCREAMS, WHEN HEARD FROM FAR ENOUGH AWAY, ARE SOMETIMES KIN TO LAUGHTER. THIS IS AN AUTUMN’S CORN MAZE.
THE CORN IS HEAVY WITH SHADOWS, AND WITH ROT. THE STALKS STRAIN, NOT FOR THE SUN, BUT FOR THE HEAVY AUTUMN MOON. ALL THINGS ARE ONE COLOR IN THE CORN MAZE, AND THAT COLOR IS THE COLOR OF THE CORN. ENEMIES VANISH. FRIENDS DISAPPEAR. THE SOUND OF KNIVES, AND OF WEEPING, IS CONSTANT. THE CORN IS WATERED WITH MANY THINGS, DEAR SUMMER CREATURE. MANY THINGS, AND FEW OF THEM PLEASANT.
DO NOT BE TEMPTED. THE CORN DOES NOT LOVE YOU AS YOU LOVE IT. THE CORN WILL NOT BE KIND.
BUT AH, A BIRTHDAY! A BIRTHDAY MAY BE KIND, FOR A BIRTHDAY KNOWS HOW TO LOVE YOU. LET US LOVE YOU. SHUN THE CORN, AND COME INTO OUR CELEBRATION OF BLOOD AND GLITTER AND CAKE WITHOUT END. TURN AWAY FROM THE CORN, WHICH IS ONLY EVER TRULY CRUEL.
HERE IS YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE. HERE IS YOUR CONICAL HAT. HERE IS YOUR SMALL PIECE OF THE SUMMER, TO WEAR ON A CHAIN AROUND YOUR NECK AND KEEP YOU FROM THE CORN, FOR THE CORN DOES NOT LOVE YOU, BIRTHDAY CHILD.
THE CORN DOES NOT LOVE YOU LIKE WE DO.
WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY. WELCOME TO THE BIRTHDAY UNENDING.
