"You're different, Caymen.""Different than what?""Than any other girl I've met."Considering most of the girls he'd met probably had fifty times as much money as I did, that wasn't a hard feat to accomplish.

My heart slams into my ribs. "Caymen."I take another handful of dirt and smash it against his neck then try to make a quick escape.

Red flames lick his elbow.There's a watch tattooed on his left wrist with ‘Fuck Time' inscribed on its face. Fuck o'clock.He's not that tall, but his body is carefully cut. The lines of his face, his cheekbones and jaw, are sharp and precise. I can see the tufts of his blond underarm hairs and under them the ladder of his ribs. He's beautiful, in the way that a knife is beautiful."

"You're not the Han Solo in this relationship, you know.""I'm totally the Han Solo," she whispered. It was good to hear her.

They didn't know that flies on their faces were bad. They didn't know that a strange man feeding them their first scary gulps of solid food wasn't a torturer.

But it sure seems like hell in the short run. . . ."

Oh, you chump and weak fool, you are one of a humanity that can't be numbered and not more than the dust of metals scattered in a magnetic field and clinging to the lines of force, determined by laws, eating, sleeping, employed, conveyed, obedient, and subject. So why hunt for still more ways to lose liberty? Why go toward, and not instead run from, the huge drag that threatens to wear out your ribs, rub away your face, splinter your teeth? No, stay away!Be the wiser person who crawls, rides, runs, walks to his solitary ends used to solitary effort, who procures for himself and heeds the fears that are the kings of this world. Ah, they don't give you much of a break, these kings! Many a dead or dying face lies or drifts under them."
