RUE DE LA VALLEE
About the Book
You should see the days here the weather is useless gentle rain when the focus should be on irrigation but there is still time to do nothing to sit here and be quietly bitten and that was all you had to tell them that the things we were offered offend the misery of history with us and our own surroundings. Language runs off with all of last week preceding us into the haze like an arabesque. The raddichio are eternal. My horse said it would go faster and dies in a Russian novel under the catalpas beside which they said everything was broken.
