Together & Sunspell
17 D 27
And so, sooner than
you think, this afternoon you consider
an afternoon of the apocalypse, will seem nothing but
a melancholy afternoon, an afternoon of loneliness lost
in memory: Nature’s mirror. Or maybe
you’ll forget it. Rain, weeping, your footsteps
resounding on the cliff-walk.
— Roberto Bolaño, from “Rain,” The Romantic Dogs (New Directions, 2008)
