Kapitel 16

This is about reading, which means it is also about writing, thinking and dreaming. A text may be performed space for letters and words that are flying through space: hiding, hurling, hitting hard. Reading equals freedom and imprisonment at the same time. Words whisper through the woods, crawl into ears, blind the eyes and drug the body. They seek their way out of books in which they are doomed to be squeezed between pages like those insect corpses one usually finds in old, re-openend books.
