What is going to happen next? Do you know this story, after all? Perhaps the evening is truly over. Patience—I am reminding myself; I am sometimes hasty in taking leave, or I have been, in the past. There is a decorous interval that ought to elapse before getting up from one’s seat, before I take your arm and guide you down the row, up the aisle, out into the lobby, where we can all see one another again in the bright mirrors—forgive me, not all of us, but you understand—mirrors that may guide us, in the lingering society of what we have seen together, out under the night sky.
Remember this: a man sleeps lying down in his bed, a man sleeps slack, and lays down his weight, and he frets when he has to sleep alone. His body’s alone and his mind reels. Better to sleep on four braced feet, and neither lie, nor lean, nor dream. Lesson 12 What happens at a gallop is the mystery. A-one-step, two-step, three-step, four-step, somewhere there we’re all suspended, up off the ground, hoist by one another’s bootstraps. Lesson 13 My part, I put it on like a shirt— a hair-shirt, neckless, hemmed with steel, the bright brocade of the zipper’s teeth— but the inside’s lined with felt so soft I scarcely feel it, just the subtlest pinch at the temples, like a crown.
