“Herrajumala. Tätä ei ole olemassa. Tätä tunnetta ei ole olemassa."
Ja minä: "Mutta mehän tunnetaan se."

Kävellessäni seuraavana aamupäivänä pitkin Liisankatua nostin kaulaliinan kasvojen suojaksi jäätävää tuulta vastaan ja tiesin, ensimmäistä kertaa ymmärin, ja uskalsin myös sanoa sen:
En koskaan saisi häntä.
Rakastaisin häntä aina.”
Kjell Westö, Älä käy yöhön yksin
