but i said to myself, ‘ah they none of them know
the secret i shelter & savor & save
i wait for the one who will see through my seeming
& i’ll know when i love by the way i behave’

– ‘when the wine drinks itself,’ he said, ‘when the skull speaks, when the clock strikes the right time – only then will you find the tunnel that leads to the red bull’s lair…there’s a trick to it, of course. near & far, far & near,’ he murmured. ‘they are within sight of your lady’s eyes, but almost out of reach of her memory. they are coming closer & they are going away.’ he closed his eyes…one eye opened slowly, green & gold as sunlight in the wood. the cat said, ‘i am what i am. i would tell you what you want to know if i could, for you have been kind to me. but i am a cat & no cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer.’…he purred in his sleep but he did not speak again,
