    Bookmarker's Notes

    The crocodile never came. But something bulbous and swollen and as translucent as the coastal trees oozed its way into their tract of land on Monday, boneless and sucking like a creature from the deep, not quite jellyfish, not quite cephalopod, but with three apertures full of human teeth and the gargling voices of three men who had been thrown (had thrown themselves?) into a death at sea.

    She asked them not to shoot it.

    No one listened.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When his book had first come out, the only thing that he hears from of any of them is a vintage postcard with the word liar messily scribbled on it in English so that the intent is crystal clear. The dark ink is smeared, which makes the message a little less visceral but not any less accurate.

    "Olly olly oxen free." David Percival smiles, face unshaven and teeth unbrushed, even in death.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I can easily wrap a scarf around my face and no one will notice. My mask was gone, blown away and burnt up in the fires of my hydrogen gas, and I am glad. It would feel like Ludendorff’s hands framing my face, thumb along the hollow of my cheek, and I want none of it.
