The painter Francis Bacon walks into a room, picks a large dictionary up off the table, and smashes Charles Darwin over the head with it. Darwin's head bleeds. The blood trickles across the floor and forms an inverse pool around the shoe of Michel Tournier who, though very old, in reality is not yet dead. Michel Tournier walks out of the room leaving behind him a single footprint of dried-up blood. For whatever reason he then gets onto the bus. On the bus, he sits next to Sven Åge Birkeland, who is reading a book about Tahitian volcanos. Virgins once were sacrificed in such volcanos. The last virgin sacrificed was a Canadian poet by the name of Leonard Cohen. The year was 1872, one hundred years before my eventual and unfortunate birth. It is now time to remember.
