The Pillow Book: 7. Sharp Things

xxxA clever child.
xxxMagnetite in a homing pigeon’s beak.
xxxPaper.
xxxA hairpin bend. A nail clipper.
xxxCook Ding’s knife. At first the whole ox. After three years the openings between the joints. Now perception and understanding have come to a stop and the spirit moves where it wants.
