Piece via piece it really is being included into whatever else. I think the coyotes racing over right here, the foxes too, one by one. Do they arrive singly or by surprise? Do they scramble to get to the kill, snarl? First rip up the animal, then tear every little thing safe to eat out of it. not anything remains in the back of, not anything is wasted, not anything is buried. Hooves, ears, eyes, there’s a use for every little thing.

To take an easy instance, I learn and listen to L’OTAN as a random association of letters without resonance whatever. L’OTAN isn't really NATO, L’ONU isn't the UN. Even boucliers vivants stay summary; human shields in contrast hits me as shut because the German menschliche Schilde.
