    "Oh, really?"
    "Well it's just that you seem to be labouring under the delusion that I am going to -- come quietly. I am afraid I am not going to come quietly at all, Cornelius. I have absolutely no intention of being sent to Azkaban. I could break out, of course -- but what a waste of time, and frankly, I can think of a whole host of things I would rather be doing.”

    “Places We Love

    Places we love exist only through us,
    Space destroyed is only illusion in the constancy of time,
    Places we love we can never leave,
    Places we love together, together, together,

    And is this room really a room, or an embrace,
    And what is beneath the window: a street or years?
    And the window is only the imprint left by
    The first rain we understood, returning endlessly,

    And this wall does not define the room, but perhaps the night
    Your son began to move in your sleeping blood,
    A son like a butterfly of flame in your hall of mirrors,
    The night you were frightened by your own light,

    And this door leads into any afternoon
    Which outlives it, forever peopled
    With your casual movements, as you stepped,
    Like fire into copper, into my only memory;

    When you go, space closes over like water behind you,
    Do not look back: there is nothing outside you,
    Space is only time visible in a different way,
    Places we love we can never leave.”
    Ivan V. Lalić
