    Wait, Kate! You skate at such a rate
    You leave behind your skating mate.

    Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understand—my mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt.

    Angela Carter (1940–1992)
