In her cottage, wattle and daub

Not gingerbread, the black cat,

Goldeneyes, is swallowing this scene:

A witch peels willow stalks,

Bruises aromatic leaves,

Half-chewed fragments

Of Latin and Greek spilling her lips,


The scene is familiar

But the cat is not hers.


It’s exactly the other way round.
