From Armonie Pierduta ~i Regasita; Emil Cioran, reprinted in The Aquarian, no. 12113, trans. Tess DiMilo I2:00: Dronley August 20th, 1998, and when I say Dronley, I mean more specifically 351/366 on OS Pathfinder map 338. Meet me in the deciduous part of the forest, but take the east approach, via Bridgefoot and Templelands. Remember, if God's huge hand were to descend from the clouds or the clear skies, straying indolently over these rough forestry pines, they would feel to him as the pale down on your arm does to me now; whereas the tiny blood-tick that negotiates it - look rears and tilts like a land rover.

The coal train shivers on the bridge. The east wind blows into his fist; the bare banks rise up, thigh and breast; half-blue, cursing under her breath, the muddy Venus of the Firth lunges through the waterburn. You come: I wish the wind would turn so your face would stay like this, your lips drawn up to blow a kiss even now, at your martyrdom the window, loose inside its frame, rolls like a drum, but at the last gives out, and you give up the ghost.

Lets it roll. When it's feenished he checks the start 0' the copy jist tae mak sure it's recorded okay. Nae sweat. Dead chuffed wi' hisel. Taks it doon the pub that night and lends it tae his pal, then his pal borrys it, exetera exetera. A fortnight later a' cunt in the pub's seen it, and some boy he disnae ken hands it back to him, funny smile on his puss.
