    “Soft and sleek — and looking—looking…Sloe—eyed—moving through the woods on a carpet of wet brown leaves (or anyway a carpet — the best — and long — and deep)…No sound—only a rhythmic beat…Honey dripping from her temples…Eyes unblinking — glinting green — challenging…Her texture bread—dough soft — and smooth and tawny—rising alive…He has penned in a lioness…No claws for those she loves — babies — mate — and even friends — a few…The best — the best (what the hell — they must be — they’re mine)…You are subdued by her lavish enthusiasm — lulled by the repetition of your own extraordinary virtues…You are king among mice — secure — remarkable — you have no equal…You belong to the kingdom of her children — she will protect you…But if you do not belong: look out…No zulac from the bazaar has a sharper knife—can use it without pause—direct—piercing…Love or Hate…Yes or No…Good or Bad…Victorian clarity…Soft — sun—serene surface—surface—surface—and under it — Woman.”
