    1. I have become an enchantress -- 2. The poison of the serpent spreads throughout my body -- 3. I purify my god with my tongue -- 4. I search for
    the formula of six words -- 5. I have closed the passage of lips and opened the secret way -- 6. One of us is a phantom. I do not know which of us is a
    phantom -- 7. You will eat no opium tonight -- 8. Questions for midnight -- 9. I am dreaming away the world to escape the four dimensions -- 10. The
    more the seekers, the fewer the finders.
