of yarling
has long been

a tradition in the
Coven of Obscurity
for release of sorrows,
regrets, anger, and other
forms of menacing emotion.
witches arrive from far and wide
for the annual yarling festival held
deep in the Forest of Obscurity. chants of
"let it go, let it be, release it, and set it free"

followed by moans, groans, and guttural
howls rumbling through the circle
spiraling into the great abyss as
the fire rages on and the
witches purge the
darkness from
their hearts

and then
