Let's run away to Vadu, to camp. We'll take the midnight express and some garlic baloney to eat on newspapers. I'm in. How do you see the world? Why do you cry when you cry? How do you laugh heartily? Tell me who you really are. I'm in. Get into the sea, naked. Are you cold? Scared? We'll make love, then I'll hold you in my arms our whole life. Right here, on the shore. I'm in. You press your left nostril with your finger, put the straw in the other and sniff. Want some? My hell started with a day in heaven.
