Quote of the day: 2/4/13

“A man gains a drop of blood per day from eating.
Each night, he gets up to slash himself
Across the face and wrist.
He must be bitten by ten thousand mosquitoes.
He sucks and he sucks.
Where would all that blood go otherwise?
Once a month, a woman drops a teacup on the floor,
A fine teacup with bones inside it.
Vietnamese and Germans now speak the same language.

-from Linh Dinh’s “Conversation Table” which is published in All Around What Empties Out
