The Best Thing I've Ever Read

"So had her grandson Hunter painted her,

Standing in a loose, simple dress

In a thousand-flower print in green and yellow,

Viewed as through dust,

Dust of another remembered country

Observed late in the day,

Risen by way of wind or horses
From a lane beyond a walled garden...

In the background of a half-timbered house,

Steep gabling of many angles,

Running back into lizard imbrication of grey slate-work

Shining, as with rain...

Wilds of rooftops, unexplored reaches, stretching as to sunset"

Thomas Pynchon - "Against The Day" p. 127
