I don't know who I can talk to. I've got people who want to kill me . . . people who want to hate you or love you or take a bit of you. -- Bono

Souris, c’est Bono ici

A ghost , though invisible, still is like a place
Your sight can knock on, echoing, but here
Within this thick black pelt, your strongest gaze
Will be absorbed and utterly disappear

Just as a raving madman, when nothing else
Can ease him, charges into his dark night
Howling, pounds on the padded wall, and feels
The rage being taken in and pacified

Two sides see-saw again, the fight

She seems to hide all the looks that have ever fallen
Into her, so that, like an audience
She can look them over, menacing and sullen
And curl to sleep with them, but all at once

As if awakened, she turns her face to yours
And with a shock, you see yourself, tiny
Inside the golden amber of her eyeballs
Suspended, like a prehistoric fly

Yes, and I know the truth about you
She cat

Think that worked

(Bono recites the poem Black Cat by Rainer Maria Rilke as An Cat Dubh plays in the background.)
