Stretches out its hand through the window toward the first person happening by. The demon's claw rips, the iron fist grips. Before, you were a model, mocks the ironic voice between serrated teeth, for me, you are raw material to work on.

New art, it says in the newspaper the following day. The learned journals give it a name that ends in ism.)
