Mis­tral

The London Magazine - - KIT FAN -

It comes at three and the Rhône runs up­stream. All the quay lamps dis­ap­pear by Pont du Trin­que­taille at quar­ter past.

Those awake un­dream the long miles home and those dream­ing learn to walk again as all glass turns back to breath and sand.

So much de­pends upon the un­do­ing that the five loaves and two fishes are left un­touched, un­di­vided.

So much de­pends upon the light of Ar­les that the sun and sea are re­born as new plan­ets of yel­low and blue.

But what’s done is un­done: the Rhône down­stream, lamps ablaze. The omi­nous is noth­ing but a back­ward mir­a­cle.

Twelve bas­kets of left­overs. A ban­daged ear, and what seems to be Mount Fuji. When it goes, there is a great calm.
