Her eyes prowl unknown jungles ~
Her tongue walks on untasted images ~
She exists feline;
a predatory, ethereal shape in long grass.
Her mind primevil ~
Her instincts intuitive ~
She mimics shadows;
a solitary, primordial dreamer
of shape-shifting memories.
(The lynx consellation was created by Johannes Hevelius around 1687. The Lynx is quite a large constellation that looks nothing at all like a lynx. Back in the seventeenth century, when astronomer Johannes Hevelius decided there needed to be a constellation between Ursa Major and Gemini, and began to study the area, he stated, "anyone who wants to study the stars here should have eyes like a lynx," and the name stuck.)
