And they were all beating, Polanco says with enthusiasm. I found twenty hearts, twenty-one counting the one I’d already taken to the police, and they were all beating like mad. You didn’t take it to the police, I saw you when you hid it in the closet. In any case, it was beating, my paredros concedes.

I’ll keep on looking for a direction, everything will enter into it, the square with the streetcars, Nicole, the pin that you were wearing the night on the Saint-Martin canal, Monsieur Ochs’s dolls, the shadow of Frau Marta on the Blutgasse, what’s important and what’s insignificant, I’ll shuffle it all over again to find you the way I want to, a book bought by chance, a wreath with lights, and even the oilcloth stone that Marrast looked for in the North of England, the oilcloth stone to carve the statue of Vercingetorix commissioned and half paid for by the town of Arcueil to the consternation of right-thinking inhabitants.

Polanco looked at Celia and shook his head sadly. “Things like that happen to all of us,” Celia insisted. ” “Bisbis, bisbis,” said Feuille Morte, who always got very excited over scientific terms. “Be quiet, m’girl,” Polanco said to Celia. “Let him go on putting corks in bottles. Thirst comes before quenching and it’s worth a lot more.
