Sheep Shaving

A found poem, derived from this site – just the words I could read, in their original order, edited down to the words that interested me (plus "a," the Portuguese word "da," some commas and a couple of repetitions):

In a forest, soft windows, virtual fusion
Basilisk, basilisk, basilisk
Lauri Personen, amiga da Gwenolé Beauchesne
Sheep shaver, sheep shaver, sheep shaver

More on the legendary basilisk here.  (Pliny the Elder's account, from his Natural History, circa 79 AD, is particularly gripping stuff.)  I wonder, if the US is the basilisk of the world, then who is the weazle?  ...Perhaps we are all the basilisk and the weazle, "Goo goo g'joob."
