Carte postale #3

According to Aristophanes in Plato’s The banquet, in the ancient world of legend there were three types of people. [...] in ancient times people weren’t simply male or female, but one of the three types: male/male, male/female or female/female. In other words each person was made out of the components of two people. Everyone was happy with this arrangement and never really gave it much thought. But then God took a knife and cut everyone in half, right down in the middle. So after that the world was divided just into male and female, the upshot being that people spend their time running around trying to locate their missing other half.
Haruki Murakami : Kafka on the shore

Le ciel était magnifiquement étoilé ce soir. Je regardais la lueur de ces soleils déjà morts perçant les ténèbres, en me disant que dans deux soirs je ne les regarderais plus seul. Give me little drink from you loving cup. Je repensais à cette chanson ce matin, dans les vapeurs du désir fantasmé de la nuit précédente. La mélodie, les paroles me revenaient comme des échos lointains. Alors j’ai mis ce disque. Just one drink and I’ll fall down drunk. J’ai mis ce disque et cette chanson au refrain obsédant comme l’image de ton corps hier soir. Give me little drink from you loving cup. Il est tard, on est déjà samedi, demain je pourrais apaiser ma soif…

I feel so humble with you tonight,
just sitting in front of the fire
See your face dancing in the flame,
feel your mouth kissing me again,
what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz
