Back Next The Capacity

Just as the cat in endless time
Licked and re-licked his paw
She in endless time
Redid, and undid her hair
And patted white baby cream
Well into her cheeks
(The cat's behaviour is instinctual - her behaviour is archetypical)
Now why is that?
Ans: She has the capacity for awareness and the cat doesn't.

Irwin R. Shaw - 1980
