Do not remove a fly from your friend’s forehead with a hatchet. China | THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

the city will never quite hold me. I will be alwayscoming back here on the up-train, peering, leaningout of the window to see, on far-off ridges,the sky between the trees, and over the racketof the rails to hear the echo and the silence.I shoulder my axe and set off home through the stillness. Les Murray
