Peter Carey Quotes: At The Annexe At This Early Hour I

At The Annexe, At This Early Hour, I Delete You, My Darling, My Beloved, With Your Wide Soft Mouth Against My Neck. I Would Rather Scrub Your Bones And Place Them In The Open Air, Scrub Your Sternum, Labour At Your Spine, Scrub And Scrub, With Love, Each Vertebra, As Particular As A Nose, And Lay You In The Grass Amongst The Bluebells. There On Your Secret Triangle Of Land I Would Be Your Most Submissive Tenant, Would Lie Beside You Until Rain, Wind Storms Raced, Threaded Like Shoelaces Through Our Missing Eyes.
