the.women’s.language

Here
is another version of the tale. That is the tale the women tell each other, in
their private language that the men-children are not taught, and that the old
men are too wise to learn. And in that version of the tale perhaps things
happened differently. But then, that is a women’s tale, and it is never told to
men.
