ΠΑΡΘΕΝΟΣ ΜΕ ΩΡΟΣΚΟΠΟ ΙΧΘΥ

Αλφάδιασε για τρίτη φορά την πετσέτα του και ξάπλωσε. Αρχικά ήταν για να βεβαιωθεί οτι το νερό ήταν στον ίσκιο, μετά για να σκουπίσει μία μία τις σταγόνες του ιδρώτα του και τώρα ήταν η σειρά των κουντεπιέ. «Τα κουντεπιέ καίγονται πρώτα» μουρμούρησε, πασαλείβοντάς τα σχολαστικά. Ξάπλωσε φυσικά από τη δεξιά μεριά. «Τί είναι ο άνθρωπος» σκέφτηκε. «Στα καλά καθούμενα να μείνεις γιατί δεν ξέρεις πόσο επικίνδυνο πράγμα είναι να κοιμάσαι απο τη μεριά της καρδιάς». Με το κεφάλι στο πλάι, κοίταζε τώρα αυτον τον κοιμισμένο τύπο, κάτω από τη διπλανή ομπρέλα, με λύπηση. Η μισή πετσέτα μες στην άμμο, τα κουντεπιέ στον ήλιο, ένα φαρδύ χαμόγελο στα χείλη και μία εξώφθαλμη στύση μές στο μαγιό. «Ε, ρε κακομοίρη» σκέφτηκε. «Τόσο δύσκολο είναι; Θα γυρίσεις σπίτι με καμένα τα κουντεπιέ. Και μετά ποιός θα τρέχει στα φαρμακεία;» Και κλείνοντας τα μάτια ψιθύρισε «Όχι εγώ»

Antoine in Japan

 

“Dear Antoine,

I hope this letter finds you well. I hope you have cleared the dirt from your throat and that the nice view can help you keep you mind of the cold. 

Here it is very cold too. 

Antoine, my love, this is all bullshit. I should have never left you alone in Japan. We would have found a way to overcome our differences. 

Please forgive me. 

Love,

v.

p.s. This waltz is for you: 

ANTOINE IN JAPAN “

MIST III

“Soon, I am sure that device will be found. It may be a tube far hidden under the mountains and the trees. Maybe quietly laid in the bottom of the seas. Or a silver line held in the mouths of a million spiders.

It will be very difficult to construct but it will be all worth the trouble, as nothing said through it will ever reach its way to anyone’s consciousness. It will remain a said and a secret at the same time. Like a carefully deleted memory.

Like a knock on a door that no one answered.”

Double Deck Bed, 1982, Laureena J. Malcolm

City Streets II

“The longer you let them run, the bigger the pleasure is. If you let them run fast and breathe to all the extends of their lungs, pump their hearts away, to the point they only listen to their hectic sound of breathing, that’s the point you should pull the trigger. When they have just started hearing freedom approach with a whispering, calling song which is still unmistakably interrupted by the true voice of your bullet.”

The Man Hunter’s Guide, 1942, Perry Lewis

“Oh, Bernard, stop it, please. As it would be needless to say anything really.

Nothing you could say could be true. You are too young. Truth is invisible to the young, you see, Bernard? It becomes obvious only when the warm light of death flickers through soft leaves, in back yards, where you stay to rest for one minute, just to catch your breath or something, and suddenly youth is gone. You see…? You may even take a step back to avoid the inescapable. And there… You pull your head up and you know: Youth is gone, and the complete desert of truth lies in front of you.”

The last 2 days of my mother, 1973, B. Melderick
