the ghosts
of the upper valley
can't agree with the witches
of the lower valley
on who of them is going to fight
against winter this year

both guilds claim
to be the original demons
- the upper valley mountain ghosts
and the lower valley witches -
and thus to be entitled
to throw the straw-covered winter
into the nightly bonfire

both guilds are age-old
and wear their carved masks
with pride... and for some reason
the idea of doing
the traditional dance together
does not even occur to them

and i wonder
who is the demon
they fight?

is it winter
or just their
own stubborness
and pride?
