If anything's here, it was built out of ash, out of the skull rubble of war. Dark snow, human snow, thickly, mutely falling. Pages and cover are clean and intact. Lonely O, blank of an eye rolled back into its socket. As with an onion, his tears come not from what she is doing to him but from what he is doing to her: tearing her apart.
