Is wise and tricky. Is long like a snake, glass-eyed like a cathedral, winged like a dragonfly. Is witty. Is clever. Is cleverer than you are. Is beautiful to look at but not to touch. Is not Prospero, not Caliban. Is maybe Ariel. Is made of glass, of snow, of gold, of wind, but not of iron. Is listening.
