Why use symbolism -especially this clumsy kind of symbolism to talk about stuff? At this point, she reminded herself that symbols are the stuff of thought. Manipulating symbols is how we think about things and any symbol she chooses will stand for whatever it is she's trying to say. Just because that’s what she chooses.
