Pain has a taste, you know. It's sharp and almost bloody, and smooth and rough at the same time. It can be quite lovely if only you can get past the minor detail in that it also hurts.

Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.
