Snøen som måtte gi tapt, det nakne barne landskapet som ble avduket så ubønnhørlig, alt dette fikk det til å svartne for meg. . Synet av idrettsbanen på skolen, med de grå øyene av is. . den groteske forvandlingen fra skøytebane til fotballbane, det tappet meg fullstendig for krefter. . jeg låste meg inne pa toalettet og nektet å komme ut. Tanken på at det bare var noen få dager til vi kunne begynne å spille fotball der igjen satte ny fart i selvmordsplanene. Jeg overveide å gå dit om natten, legge meg ned midt ute på banen og svelge noe gift, slik at de ville finne meg der, på midten, lik et emblem, dagen etter.
Enda munnen min nå påny var lukket med syv segl, og jeg selv ikke hørte en lyd. Det var slik at de gikk på appetitten løs, anklagene hennes (det er rart, hvordan enkelte ting henger sammen). Hun sa jeg slukte maten. Jeg pleide å svare at ja, jeg sluker maten, FOR Å SLIPPE A KJENNE HVOR JÆVLIG D E N SMAKER! Og det var sant: når jeg en enkelt gang var så uheldig å måtte stoppe midt i, da var det som tiden stilnet, som om verden gikk i stå, og da var smaken der på et øyeblikk, da eksploderte den, uten en lyd, inne i munnen på meg, med sin råtne stank av død.
Forvandlingen var fullbragt, og under det personlige mørkets beskyttende kappe oppdaget jeg at jeg hadde oppkastet meg til en slags røver og politi i ett, dommer og tiltalt, aktor og forsvarer, statsmakt og undersått, overfallsmann og offer, alt sammen, utøvende og unngjeldende part i en og samme instans, motsatt samfunnslivet forøvrig hvor slike motpoler ikke uten grunn er parvis adskilt, hver enkelt av dem pålagt etter loven ikke å opptre som mer enn denne ene. Jeg, derimot, måtte sørge for alt selv.
