The taste of butter (303/415/485)

--Black Phillip.
I conjure thee to speak to me.
Speak as thou dost speak
to Jonas and Mercy.
Dost thou understand
my English tongue?
Answer me.
--What dost thou want?
--What canst thou give?
--Wouldst thou like the
taste of butter?
A pretty dress?
Wouldst thou like to
live deliciously?
--Yes.
--Wouldst thou like
to see the world?
--What will you from me?
--Dost thou see a
book before thee?
Remove thy shift.
--I cannot write my name.
--I will guide thy hand.
