I don’t want to remember names. Names stink of money, grease,
baby vomit and new clothes. Some stink of righteousness, and
patriotism, others of sour deodorant and sweat.
Better to think of heaven: the rolling clouds, the light like needles
sticking into everything,
all the beasts so peaceful and tame.
