Fourteen





(tissue paper, fabric, silk thread, pencil)


This is a story I've mostly sewn over. It disappeared almost entirely. But I can tell you how it begins:


Samuel Beckettin näköinen nainen suutelee minua ovisyvennyksessä.* Sinä vedät siitä herneen nenään.**
A woman who looked like Samuel Beckett kissed me by the door.* You get all upset about it.**

(I like things that are no longer there where I left them, as long as they're word things, not phones or sandwiches.)



*purely fictional
**based on a true story

Samuel Beckettin näköinen nainen suutelee minua ovisyvennyksessä.* Sinä vedät siitä herneen nenään.**
A woman who looked like Samuel Beckett kissed me by the door.* You get all upset about it.**
