The poskok has a macabre-hissing tone to its dynamic language, a hissing that bellows out fear, and out of worry and inborn aggressiveness, its impulses create a neurological response that makes it soar and soar. Again, the why of this will pop out in the tale! But it’s far usually prudent to recognize the history of things, and so I am prepared to proportion it with you.
