2. Little Black Classics

Lips too chilled, O Cruel Alexis
It was snowing butterflies
The Terrors of the Night, Wailing Ghosts
The nightingales are drunk

How We Weep and Laugh at the Same Thing
I Hate and I Love, Circles of Hell
The Gate of the Hundred Sorrows
How Much Land Does A Man Need?

The Old Man of the Moon, A Pair of Silk Stockings
Femme Fatale, The Tinder Box
Mrs Rosie and the Priest, A Modest Proposal
The Tell-Tale heart, Come Close, To-morrow

Well, they are gone, and here must I remain
On the Beach at Night Alone
Woman much missed, The Beautifull Cassandra
Remember Body... A Simple Heart

Travels in the Land of Serpents and Pearls
The Night is Darkening Round Me
As kingfishers catch fire, The Old Nurse's Story
The Meek One, The Reckoning

My Dearest Father, Leonardo da Vinci
The Fall of Icarus, The Nose
The Life of a Stupid Man
Goblin Market, Socrates' Defence
