Roberto Bolaño Quotes: I Saw The Way My Eyes Looked Then Saw

I Saw The Way My Eyes Looked Then, Saw Them With The Eyes I Have Now, And I Heard My Cry Once More, The Timbre Of My Voice, The Extreme Politeness Of A Girl Of Eight Who Shouts After A Boy Of Eight To Remind Him Not To Forget His Eraser And Yet Can't Call Him By His Name, James, Or Crawford, The Way We Do In School, And Opts, Consciously Or Unconsciously, For The Diminutive Jimmy, Which Indicates Fondness, A Verbal Fondness, A Personal Fondness, Since Only She, In That World-encompassing Instant, Calls Him That, A Name That Somehow Casts In A New Light The Fondness Or Solicitude Implicit In The Gesture Of Warning Him He's Forgotten Something, Don't Forget Your Eraser, Or Your Pencil, Though In The End It's Simply An Expression, Verbally Poor Or Verbally Rich, Of Happiness.
