Abstract: incontrammo d'anime una schiera, che venia lungo l'argine The man who came back from the dead told us the pitch, the great brown pitch is the most of it, for it’s as tar, nor hot nor cool though, but thick as tar and never giving you up. My sister is two years older than I, but the two years were more then. We were both in blue jeans; mine were cuffed in wide folds. The man who came back from the dead sold produce at the open-air market on Freeman Street. I especially remember the sour, firm wine-crapes that attracted most of the yellow-jackets. My sister tested some fruit. "We'd like these two pears. please." The man pulled them up gently with his brown hand and placed them in a fragile, wrinkled bag that carried random ink markings. Later I found dried stem and leaf fragments at the bottom, with the pears. It was in the summer of her ninth, my seventh birthday.
