The Sun

Their belief that that they will be alive tomorrow. Their yearning belief. Their main driver from top to bottom: the Sun, which traverses its arc for them; rising from beneath the cow’s belly – a bridge – up above them, shining down on their straight back, their upper outline, their brilliant, comical straightforwardness, the rightness of the head and the tail, sublimely connected, a private horizon...’
