The Lohengrin Castle Chronicles - 9

I shall cultivate the radish and the turnip
Mahatma Suzy, her glorious hair awash, her swollen nipples pup-tenting her mauve turtleneck, nibbled a previously-owned Kalamata frittata and leisurely turned the pages of Catherine de Medici’s Book of the Hours. “I have done with war,” she muttered into her beard, then springing from her downy couch, she gazed out over the Jornada del Muerto, a burning d Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Donald O'Donovan  (?)

“My grandfather was a railroad brakeman, sixty years with the D&H. I'd sit on his lap when I was little, I remember, at the upstairs apartment on Watkins Avenue in Oneonta overlooking the tracks, and we'd look out at the yard together and watch the trains hooking up, and he'd pull his gold watch out of his vest pocket and squint at the dial, a gold pocket watch, and the bulging surface of the watch case was all scritch-scratched, etched with tiny soft lines, hundreds of tiny scratches, interlaced. And then he'd check the yard, my Grandpa, to see if the trains were running on time. In those days there was a rhythm to everything, there was an order to things, but now we're riding a runaway train that's carrying us all away to that final night where nothing is remembered and nothing matters.”
Donald O'Donovan, Night Train: A Novel

“Now we’re riding a runaway train that’s carrying us all away to that final night where nothing is remembered and nothing matters.”

“I’m living the life of an urban hunter-gatherer—again.”
