Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

The Cat: Or, How I Lost Eternity - Jutta Richter, Rotraut Susanne Berner, Anna Brailovsky Don't be fooled by the shortness and cute cat pictures; this sad, funny, philosophical little book is not for children(or at least not especially for them). I would have understood it as a child, but I would have hated it. You can't unknown things once you've learned them, yet you can lose the understandings you once possessed. You can't stop yourself from growing up.
