Boklördag/Obviously you don’t seem to know the power of fashion

DEATH: Since you were born from my mother’s womb, it would be good if you would help me in some way with my chores.
FASHION: I have done that in the past more often than you think. First of all, though I continuously cancel and distort all the other customs, I’ve never in any place allowed the practice of dying to stop; and because of this, you can see it going on everywhere from the very beginning of the world until today.
DEATH: Some miracle – that you didn’t do what you couldn’t.
FASHION: What do you mean I couldn’t? Obviously you don’t seem to know the power of fashion.

Fick världens finaste upplaga med Giacomo Leopardi-texter häromdagen, elva av dem; ”Dialogue Between Fashion and Death” är titeltexten och därfrån kommer (obviously) utdraget ovan. Än har jag bara läst trettio sidor, men Björn Kohlström har skrivit om den här. Tillsvidare kan jag berätta att den är rolig och intelligent och passar i en ficka. För er som tycker om sådant.
