p. 314-15: He was in a cafe where no policeman could come, and he wanted to go away to a kif world where the police were chasing him. ‘This is the way we are now,’ he thought. ‘We work backwards. If we have something good, we look for something bad instead.’ He lighted the sebsi and smoked it. Then he blew the hard ash out of the chqaf. It landed in the brook beside the second bridge. ‘The world is too good. We can only work forward if we make it bad again first.’ This made him sad, so he stopped thinking, and filled his sebsi. While he was smoking it, Ben Tajah looked in his direction, and although they were facing each other, He of the Assembly did not notice Ben Tajah until he got up and paid for his tea. Then he looked at him because he took such a long time getting up off the floor. He saw his face and he thought: ‘That man has no one in the world.’ The idea made him feel cold.
