  • Undercover whispers

    Toni Morrison, USA

    It’s nice when grown people whisper to each other under the covers. Their ecstasy is more self-sigh than bray and the body is the vehicle, not the point. They reach, grown people, for something beyond and way, way down underneath tissue. They are remembering, while they whisper, the carnival doll they won and the Baltimore boats they never sailed on. The pears they let hang on the limb because if they plucked them, they would be gone from there and who else would see that ripeness if they took it away for themselves?
