Almost at midnight last night, the lights went out. Blackouts excite me. I gave up trying to see, closed my eyes, and dressed like a blind man. I took whisky in a mug disguise and cigarettes and went out to be in the quiet.

It is much cooler now and the sky is still clear. The cat appeared, running ahead and behind as if she owned the dark. And there were stars over the city. I walked up the middle of the street, looking up and stumbling on cobblestones, pointing to constellations and saying their names to no one.
