She tells me to take her to the sea. I say, How is it she wants to go to the sea with that gangrene on her leg. She says it’s fucking fine, Polishly speaking. After which, because there’s not a naked soul in the hospital corridors, she rips of some crutches. I say that it’s not the hour for the sea. She says exactly, that it’s the best hour, and that she wants to go there only with me, probably because this feeling in her that she feels is just for me. I say that she’s fucked in the brain, but generally I warm a lot to the idea that she loves me and admits as much without a shadow of falsehood. Dorota Masłowska, Snow White and Russian Red
First she told me she had good news and bad news. Leaning across the bar. Which do I want first. The good news, I say. So she told me that in town it looks like there’s a Polish-Russki war under a white-and-red flag. I say, How do you know, she says she heard. So I say, Then I’ll take the bad. So she took out her lipstick and told me that Magda says it’s over between me and her… Dorota Maslowska, Snow White and Russian Red. (via robertdarling)
