Catabatic Ecphrasis: The Lo-Shia
September 7, 1993

The door leading to the Lo Shia was no different than any other door in the house.
It was a standard-sized door, colored in an off-white with a battered and scraped
pseudobrass doorknob. The door was not unique, but behind it lay a dark, gloomy
place, which was the abode of numerous alien horrors.

What in hell is "Lo shia" ditto for "ecphrasis".
PS. I found "ecphtrasis":
Ekphrasis, alternately spelled ecphrasis, is a term used to denote poetry or poetic writing concerning itself with the
visual arts, artistic objects, and/or highly visual scenes.
