I can imagine, how having stolen a horse, one has to retire from the city and become a wanddring hermit, coming and going, finding hay in the most unusal place, until too old, the steed or the thief, can ride not more

Wish I had read The Silent Cry at a quieter time. Though, tbf, it was so engaging that I gladly reread any number of pages whenever I realised my eyes had just mindlessly ice-skated over them, with none of the annoyance that usually bubbles up when that happens.
Looking forward to more Oé in the near future, but coming up next are the following contenders: C Lispector, J Genet, Xingjian Gao, O Tokarczuk, J Huizinga, P Klossowski, A Lobo Antunes, P Roth, Herta M.

Been thinking of this lately:

"El apocalipsis no es una metáfora es un lugar lleno de belleza y llevamos años ahi. La publicidad nos engaña."

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each other's wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of peace

So raise your candle high
Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night
Raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain

I'll make sure to keep you posted. I also have some coffee seeds laying around... I could grow a whole Jim Jarmusch film.
