Part of Eve's Discussion

It was like the moment when a bird decides not to eat from your 
and flies, just before it flies, the moment the rivers seem to still
and stop because a storm is coming, but there is no storm, as 
a hundred starlings lift and bank together before they wheel and 
very much like the moment, driving on bad ice, when it occurs to 
your car could spin, just before it slowly begins to spin, like
the moment just before you forgot what it was you were about to 
it was like that, and after that, it was still like that, only
all the time.
