Night Watch

“There is a gap in ‘world pain’ through which the singular falls continually and forever; a body falling in observable space, deprived of the privacy of disapperance; as if privacy, moving relentlessly away, by the very sustaining power of its withdrawal, kept the body eternally moving downward,  but in one place, and perpetually before the eye. Such a singular was Nora. There was some derangement in her equilibrium which kept her immune from her own descent.”

–Djuna Barnes
