"I'm looking out of the window. The morning is bathed in sunshine. I look out of the window at the Na Rozcestí pub, where I was drunk on rum last week and thought to myself, that something beautiful and sacred was starting for me again. I listen to Laurie Anderson making fun of men with her masculine voice, and I think of the mysterious lava that erupted in me and then began to solidify, which was and is surprisingly a very painful process.

I won't call her anymore because she tortures and just as when I got drunk and called her, yet cold and thinking, strangely impersonally excited and willing to kill or cry, she wasn't there, she's never there when I have to call her because I still have no right to have her, just as I have no right to anything. I simply opened my eyes in the morning to find that something was dying in me, and it was pain accompanied by a taste of rage and an eagle's determination to do something, destroy something, break it or create it, drive it out, no matter what happens.”
