“fear of that same death. An inferno of opposing desires. One day I stopped working. One day I stayed in bed. I stopped answering the phone, I just stopped. I let myself be dismissed from the high school where I was teaching, received unemployment, sick days, and later, social security. And later, much later, the earth, the trees, the rain. Especially the trees. Their certain endurance in this world, standing, in the same spot, moving and under the influence of everything around them, but they don't move, they never move until someone cuts them down. And even then, it doesn't necessarily end their lives—it's not easy to get rid of a tree. The stump sprouts and soon it's tall and dense again, growing wildly.”
Naja Marie Aidt, Baboon

“det svier, der hvor du lagde din hånd. som om du har sat dit aftryk i mit kød. og det er jo det du har. som ingen anden har du sat dit aftryk i mit kød. jeg er fuld af ar. jeg er dig ikke utaknemmelig. det hører til mit livs store oplevelser. det er uforklarligt. det er kemi. og jeg husker det hele som viljeløse handlinger, der dog var så fulde af vilje . til dit kød. dengang. lagenernes hvide stof i min knyttede hånd.”
Naja Marie Aidt, Bavian

“That was the day I bought oysters, and he ripped my fancy dress to shreds. She's naked, rummaging around on a shelf with underwear. It's a big one, and she's happy she has it. He bought it for her, but then realized he also liked having her put it in him. It surprised her, to be doing something like that. That she even enjoyed it. And it had surprised her that he let her do it. But, she thinks shutting the closet door, there is such a connection between us. We're marked by each other. Then she puts the shoes on and looks in the mirror. Still beautiful. Her skin is dull and white in the dim light. He's already lying in bed, settled and ready. "You're so wonderful," he whispers pulling her down to him.”
Naja Marie Aidt, Baboon
