Ipso Facto
Witchcraft is ipso facto, on its face and by its nature, an invisible crime. Who may possibly be witness to it? In a dark basement out of sight of the world, a witch cooks a brew. Eyes follow her progress from the shadows, within cages, from inside jars, silent as the grave. Horrors hide in the darkness, but sometimes it’s preferable not to turn on the light. Do not be lulled into complacency, Ipso facto, some things really are as they first appear.
