It is remarkable, all that men can swallow. For a good ten minutes I read a newspaper. I allowed the spirit of an irresponsible man who chews and munches another's words in his mouth, and gives them out again undigested, to enter into me through my eyes. I absorbed a whole column of it. And then I devoured a large piece cut from the liver of a slaughtered calf. Odd indeed!
(Hesse, Steppenwolf, p. 39)
exactly. precisely. this must be why I've been craving organ meat. ah the slaughtered calf. we are all anemic.
