Paula Stokes
“I dream of a small room and a man with one eye. Blood seeps like scarlet tears from his empty socket. I turn away and the room becomes a hallway that becomes a stairway that becomes a roof. The wind tugs at my body; the sky tries to wrap me in stars. Below me, a gazebo glows with red light. A line of black cars crawls like cockroaches through the streets.

An air conditioner exhaust fan chitters angrily near the roof’s edge, one of its blades bent just enough to scrape against the side of the casing. For a second I let the wind push me close enough to the fan’s razor- sharp blades that a lock of my hair gets snipped and sent out into the night. As it twists and flutters toward the gazebo, I think about just letting go, letting the breeze carry my body into the whirling blades, the wind scattering pieces of me throughout the city. Blood and flesh seeping into the cracked pavement. Flowers blooming wherever I land.”
Paula Stokes, Vicarious

“К темноте надо относиться с уважением. Ночь — это то время, когда Вселенная бурлит злом и опасностью. И можно называть это суеверием. Можно называть это боязнью темноты.

Если только ты волею случая не одинок и не вынужден делать что-то иное.”
Peter Høeg, Smilla's Sense of Snow
