“They made all my friends into chips. In my head they’ve installed a kaleidoscope that they call life. Sometimes when I turn my head quickly, I see them randomly. It seems they don’t have any meaning on their own. With them all together and yet so scattered, it’s like a fuzzy picture of my past. It’s like they hadn’t ever lived, like they were parts of a fictional past. In the Near East children mature early and die early. They take their place in the kaleidoscope at once.”
