Deres ruglete tungemål var ellers ufattelig. Nest siste dag, og jeg, den overlevende, sover fremdeles i den grønne urtids kjernehus. 54 Livet er avlyst. La oss sove videre til neste eon. Snart blir solen en supernova, samme faen. ETTER OSS, TEGN 55 II F R A EN H V I T SVARTEBOK Nei, denne forferdelige innsikten kunne den blinde astrologen ikke gjøre kongen og hele hoffet delaktig i. Ikke et knyst til noen. Fra sitt nordvendte tårnvindu kastet han seg ned i vollgraven og brøt det skjøre islaget novembernatten hadde laget.

Solen bevisstløs. Ingen av dem skal komme igjen, hverken nakne eller forkledde. Der utenfor er verden alt blitt et gigantisk hvitskimrende fossil. Verden. Og der sitter du, Christabel, med bankende hjerte alene og venter, til du er en spindeltråd gjennom stillheten etter deg. 64 I sommernatten står et svevende skipsvrak inn forstadsveiene Gallionsfiguren til rors og seilene fylt av dine sovende åndedrag Sett mellom trærne: Tegnene i et ikke-språk skrives av øyenstikkerben i den blikkstille vannflaten, uutslettelige som helleristningene i den nyfødtes panne I himmelseng av mose ved bredden av Sognsvann sover nakenbadersken som drømmer deg istykker.

Under kaskader av frossent sjørokk: Visne løvkjemper sleper seg avsted mot den innerste speilsalen, der latteren stilner. På trærne i de sovendes hage, hos Tornerose, spirer dukkehoder med størknede smil kommer du, uprins ? Pilgrimen styrtet i jomfruens dype pupill. Han ble liggende der nede hos stalagmittene og beinrestene etter liderlige monstre. ETTER O S S , TEGN 53 (KAUDERVELSK) De dødfødte ordene lærer å gå, gå på stylter av frittstående blodårer. Så kan vi, uvisst for hvilken gang, jage dem over til den andre siden.
