"Een man viel,sleepte heesters, spreeuwen, schoonheid met zich mee.‘Doe dat nog eens, zei een vrouw,en hij viel opnieuw,sleepte triestheid en muziek en liefdemet zich mee,en kasten vol kinderen.‘En nog eens, zei zij,en hij viel met een schreeuw,sleepte de zon met zich mee.‘En nog eens, zei zij,en het werd koud om hem heen -hij viel in duizend stukken.‘En nog één keer, zei die vrouw,en hij viel opnieuw."

A gurgling noise arose, not from his throat but from his chest, from deep down, as if he were fighting for something. Struggling. His eyes shifted toward her. Joan raised the poker again. The gurgling stopped—not abruptly but in a final, lingering, prolonged, exhalation of breath. His lungs gradually expelled every last atom of oxygen." - Author: Cate Campbell Beatty
