A.m., She's, at, the supermarket, June that little white. Guy right, behind her this before look in his eyes. Critically. Critical, right, judgmental. Because he's probably thinking she's, a little bit he's sizing up this shopping in her basket packing, his spaghetti bottle. Of French wine bag, of Brussels sprouts and, some pastrami. The, only thing he can think of is how she's taking up this place in the cube she's thinking he's thinking about how she's taking up his place in the queue that if she weren't there then the supermarket, cues would be that shorter, excusing, the post office will be that much short, that. If she went there then he might have been the one living in her pieces had flat he, always wanted, to live on a cases had. The. Empress, Canal the second, and widest, of the three canals in Amsterdam city, center. She. Also wants, in it when the crisis, worked she. Also wants, to stand on her parquet, floors in her, sliver. Dutch. The slippers. Is. Up against the central heating and look, at the double glazed window at the ducts in the canal, she, also wants to be looking down at her bicycle that she keeps tied up to this little bridge with two chains and her, grocery, bag she's, left lying on the rack like some saddle, for drugs to dump into Heineken cans inside Perkins. Was a Heineken, into, he thinks she's religious he's noticed. This pastrami, she's buying and not ham and now he's, convinced, she's religious that she's this all the, gods Muslims and. He's seen, her got the pastrami from the, shelf that says how loud. The. Arab, word for the Muslim, equivalent, of kosher, food. He. Thinks she's Muslim and that's such he's sinking that she's taking up his place in the, queue, he's thinking she's taking up two places in a cube he's thinking I've got this parasite, a my, that's going to feed the face faxes, he's thinking is faxes. What else you know about taxes.

Country a, democracy. She's. Thinking he's, thinking that, because she is a dead ringer for her she's thinking he's thinking how, underneath. That hijab is, a girl, who is the spitting, image of her that they both got the same complexion. And the same eyes he's, thinking she's this sekime, a Muslim Moroccan, Turkish, maybe that she must work as I shared with some other supermarket. Chain even cashiers, have to go to the supermarket for their shopping so she's wearing her headphones she's, singing in English she's thinking he's going to think she's Italian he's, thinking she's either this Italian, who's picking up some French wine or, to some secular. Muslim, cashier, feeding, or she's asking the cashier for the total in English. Why English Dutch, speak. Now's. Not the time to be practicing, your Dutch it, moved my neighbor lands open it I.

She's, having a transvaginal. Ultrasound. Examination. Transvaginal. Ultrasound. Examination. And there's our pulses, there pause is repulse but she's nothing citizen for a post Oh Jim, for telling she violinist, she wants to tell him she used to play with the Amsterdam Philharmonic. I bet, he goes to concerts I. Bet. His father goes to concerts and the, Opera I bet he is mr. Bob know when he's making dinner conducting. The pots and frying pans with all his ladles, and spoon turning on the flame on the gas home muttering, in German yes, and conspire. She thinks it might be wise to share, something personal with, him just as he's sticking that contraption between, her lips share, something personal like. Living-dead, something. About herself about. Her Dutchman, help, him relate to her whilst he's having all these anti-semitic, thoughts about her jet-black pubes, share something, anything. Something, about that party, in Belgium. And that 16th century, castle its font ass. Right. Castle. In the servants, wing. She. Took methylene dioxide, methamphetamine. Ecstasy. In, Kittleman. Even touch the stars just before midnight the very last 10 seconds during the actual countdown, right, because if New Year's Eve and there were fireworks outside, the castle in the snow and she went outside she. Went outside even, though her dress the dress she bought especially for, that party in spawn town at some tiny vintage, shop on one of the young bands night streets the young the must have come a dress with the red zigzag, patterns. And. Her Dutchman told her off you, have to have a coat on he, was saying either get back in the cars and all go put on a coat. She's, telling him how her Dutchman, said to her. Yes. He's busy assessing, her baby's, body with his ultrasound, stick, that he's shoved right between her thighs he's. Looking, her in the eyes seeing, pink, nipples. He's, looking her in the eye seeing, the nipples of naked, Jewish, women, running, through the ghetto and he can't say whether it wants the shooter, or, up or saber Ameria. Flashing. Neuroscience. Like they have in the cartoons he's, looking her in the eye seeing, her breasts, he's, looking, seeing Christ walk on water he's, looking her in the eye seeing, nothing but I knows he's thinking she hasn't got a Jewish nose actually, actually.
She Hasn't got a Jewish nose actually she's, thinking that if she tells him she lives on the kaisers what then he won't think that, she's. Some piss-poor immigrant, living in some neighborhood, no one has the guts to separate nor even the police then, she tells him she lives on the kaisers raft right by the photography, resume now if she. Was here if she wanted, to be that if he knew she was here because she could be now if he knew she was here because a whole life is an adventure if she told him about her places right if, she told him about the looks in the wall she doesn't know bit about the nooks in the woods so that she told him about the nooks and the, burrows that if she told him are Bellbird gas-filled. She. Needs to tell him about, she. Knows she needs to tell him about the gas-filled she knows she wants to show him the gas bill and have him explain what it says and how she ended, up with that bill why. She of all people should, end up getting such a crazy, high gas bill and if, there is a, 1700. Euro gas leak on her hands then how was she not dead yet, she. Knows he can translate for us but instead she just stopped snowing on about a flat on the cases grass the, canal facing, window that the top tree with a baby shoes hanging from it and instead of telling him just how much she adores that view from that window instead, of telling him just how incredibly, fortunate she feels having found a flat on the clay that's grass instead. She comes out with these, views don't look anything like the landscapes, of my childhood. Pulse. Is dropping it's, a fetus in distress pulse is dropping. She. Could also tell, him she wrote the Starling, peridot, represented. The Netherlands, with pride. Dutch. For, I am of German, blood line a line from the Dutch national anthem. When asked to write to sing, the, national anthem she, rewrites, the lyrics to say Ben, Nick Van, Dusen blood I am. Of Jewish. Bloodline. Well. Maybe kids every, Saturday we tried to make more at Beach and on our way back in the evening just as he was starting to get dark we, would see all the flocks of starlings through, the car window he'd like to give, them his childhood, landscape. Signs, all, sigh in unison, in the same direction and then all, the ones in pitch, perfect synchronicity. They'll change direction, and, they. Do not entertain. The humans, oh no, it's, not some perfectly. Timed flawlessly. Choreographed. Performance delivered. By transient. Guests no, sir because, this. Is not the answer, only, I'm not the audience no. No no they don't know we're watching and not only do they not realize we are watching they couldn't tell us about any one of us hmm it's how, they defend themselves.
It Opens my craziness. Backdraft, let's mix that ready to write on it back Wow. When we enter she's from Israel, these smiles that's right wicked, smiles he, loves, her militant, streak. Could. Be the army all the kibbutz of this, collective, sense of paranoia is, fantasizing. About her. M16. Israelis. Have got a bit of a starling. Mentality, happening that word darling, it's that word right, because, in Amsterdam. She, can be the starting she is without having to follow the flocs rules timing, or direction, she herself is a bit of a paradox that needs resolve things no it's not paradox, it's Apple if aeneas what it is every. Voice its own, independent. Rhythmic. Entity. With no voice play, second, fiddle. She. Is a she. Is the, Starling, paradox. Tell, him how yon tipped, the envelope under your door tell, him you open that letter and found that Cassville ask, him to translate explain. It to you don't what to do he's having a peek inside her. Vagina thinking. To himself so, this is what a Jewish come to us like he's up on a snippet of Aegina thinking, to himself so, this is what I do is plant smells like she's, showing him the bill saying. Yes. She said no yeah bill. Thousand. Seven hundred euros. We've, got pulse. Park. 1:00 in, the afternoon and, she's. Sir, in front of her agent, her, agent yeah who is in charge of, representing. The most promising talent of Canada Europe's conservatories. In recent years she sat in front of her thinking. Seriously. Are. You seriously, asking me, this, she is seriously asking, of this looking at dead straight in the eye ask you know without even flinching. Yeah, she's. Asking, her the question that's rendered her frozen, as if. It was January again and the council, was still busy cooking the last remaining shards of broken shock bubbles left over from New Year's on the side of the road in the snow she's asking, a question, that's rendered her tongue paralysed as if everyone all at once forgot, that they ever spoke English, and now making, her yes literally. Making her that is if she'd like to be understood, making, them say all in Dutch no mistakes, are not a hint of an accent she to. Compose a requiem. For. 551. Dead, children, excuse. Me in. Gaza that's. What she's asking her why. Don't you compose, an eye cream for. 551. Dead children, and Hausa why, should she composer their commune for 551. Children. Because, they. Like it political, is why well, they all think she's all whoa yeah, proper. Westerner, but there are others like having, that slaughterhouse. She comes from fancy, her beacon, of light in the great darkness. When. Everyone. Knows all, of them herself included, even she knows that when all said and done she is nothing more than a fig leaf hiding. The very thing that everyone else would be that much happier and they're now having to look at why, should I carry this giant, flag around with me everywhere I go she's asked if she's asking even, though she knows too well what the answer is she. Knows that at the end of the day she is now months pregnant, and that, even though it is recommended, that during, this ninth month one doesn't lift or carry any heavy loads say, like a flag this. Final, ultimate, month symbolizes. That at last after all these years she's, finally going. To have a child and, that is not to say oh no in no way shape or form it's not to say that even if there are. 551. Dead, children, that, even if one woman across the border has had three of no children died on her after a 250. Kilogram, bomb fell, right next door to them none, of that's to say that she isn't allowed her own baby and after war it's not as if she has to write a requiem, for 551. Beds children, she barely even had a mother and father herself, and who's only ever wanted a small family. She, ever, seen everyone else pretty much give up on the prospect of her ever having children she of all people but. They don't care about that do they no, sir when, she's not schooling. A concern - about love or, painting, it's still life or writing, a story about a girl from whatever country why, do they keep smearing, me with all this blood she wonders she wanders because she is also a human, being and, she is, also a woman, and, she, also gets a little damp between her legs with a strange man's lips brush, against, her ear monoplane asking, if he could possibly get through. Because. After all she, hasn't killed anyone has she and it's, true it would be highly unfair, to argue otherwise that, she didn't push that button and it's true that it's nobody's damn business who, she voted for in the general, election, because she doesn't have to answer to anyone about a reason for serving, in the army why so put on a uniform what sir I should salute, some pot-bellied. Bearded, man with all his ranks, auntie why, she, I've seen your officers, while they were waiting on updates, in the field as this swarm of planes made, in one country drop.
Bombs Made in another country, on the buildings, of a third country. The. National, anthem. And. Keep her chin up with conviction, in a convergent, harmony, of rising Chin's mailed, fascism. Flags flying at full mast, that's her tune. Linda. And that baby it has and it, would have be you citizenship, yes it will because he came into the world in Europe one might say it. Came to you. The. Rules you, do so love your rules. It's. Aryan. Sperm insider, with, his one, meter non T of pure, muscle high, IQ. And blue eyed promises, of genetic, supremacy. Are complemented, by an affinity for bureaucracy. And Dennison port. Fella, matter. But, why, would she talk, to her about her music now where the stolen paradox. They instead, of talking to her about their starting paradox instead. Of talking to her about the music, instead. Of. Whether. She does not compose the Rick we have a 551. Day or much like a children instead instead she, gets the bailout that bill. She couldn't talk up the courage to show that guy at the supermarket or, the doctor. Who would stop that sound wave erupting, between her sides that. Bill she's been shaking around in her bag all day that, her neighbor young, had slipped under her door that. 1700. Euro gas bill that's. What she gets. When. She's wearing her shoes. When. He. Into. The. Building. Overshot. Your SS. Cars in Bob hours. The. SD, officer, who was in charge of the squad that had stormed, the Franks hide out over, on 263. Prinsengracht. Whose. Echo, cuts through the envelope in the bag the, letter inside, the envelope in the bag the number on the letter inside, the envelope in the bag yes. 8:07. In, the evening she's, circling, a glass of red wine with those violinists. Fingers of hers and having, a conversation with. The. Guy or the girl behind the. Victoria. Who she meant a Dutch person and dragged her all the, way across town to someplace in the East where everyone, was into, freestyle. Storytelling. All, that, Club over at the ER baton where they're always shown the old Hollywood, classics, down in a basement all the foreigners, all. The furnace, hang out there because that's the only place that's, right, among all the outcasts. They feel themselves part, of some cats Victoria. Was born in Belgrade. Born. In Belgrade right, but studied, in Madrid, but studied, in Madrid right but then emigrated, to me that emigrated, to Milan between in India set, up shop in Amsterdam right. Because, she fell in love with that Nigel fella, that was actually, all you if she takes her show all over, the world that feminist, show of hers right with, that big old skirt that's rules out what to see but not like a wavy, if not stormy, sea when it brushes up against seagull, Island on tents you're a beach Jia more. Like the highways, that slam, into the Black Sea coastline, when, Victoria, is doing. When. Victoria, is on her bike cycling. Through, the streets, of Calvinists, and, yes, in her Russian fur hat or even, a fishnet stockings, on the rational Shores yes. She. Trains with Soviet, like devotion, spinning, around around, the world, oh yeah. She. Is oh yeah. Feminism. Is verging on man-hating.
Man. Yeah. Yeah, exact sometimes. She has to do your belly dancing, stint at some Lebanese restaurant. But. The Sheik and up in arms about Muslim. Women in their burgers of war she's packing some Preity Zinta for big sounding opinions she's making some pretty misogynistic, sounding, opinions she's packing some pretty Islamophobic. Sounding opinions. Because. She's a woman because, she's a foreigner, because she's half Muslim, herself. So. Victoria. Matt, say Victoria, she's, asking, her what's. In the envelope she grabs the envelope yeah asking, her what is this bill Jesus, getting what another means she lands it over to the bartender get, him to close wait for she, hands it over to the hot Dutch bartender. At the Stanislavski, to translate for her she's telling the whole dock bartender. At the Spaniards Lab scheme she's, too embarrassed to ask her silver that she's way too embarrassed. To ask herself that she's been carrying this bill around, with her or days even though she has shown that what she absolutely has. Showing. That built in that agent of hers from the contemporary, classical, music record label and my agents, are the same agent he'd suggested, she composed right we enter. 551. Dead children, could only have struck her shoulders, and mutter. I. Haven't. The foggiest idea. Victoria. Snickers and starts telling him about India, he's got the gas bill in his hand tried to figure it out but he can't Tammy because he's got Victoria, with atomic water standing, there right in front of him banging, on and, on. About. The war about. That Bosnia fella her father was hiding in their home about, that Bosnian fella her father was hiding in a home at. Night but that father you'd kicked her out for trash-talking, that Bosnian, soldier, he'll finally. Yes finally at last, Victoria. Pauses, she comes up on merciful, that's, right she's, taking a pause with a pause yet rather and it's true that pause that that that bartender, says your. Landlords, not paid her bill he's saying this is a gas bill from. 1944. And mumbling, something about how this, sum total, also includes fines Maria's, interest, -, 819. This house that. You address. I. Could. Try and do some digging for you he tells her because he's got this brother-in-law. Napal. Childhood, friend whatever it's much manner he's squashed father that's a good one he, works at a council, archives and he might stay in her address -, eight nine kosis, walked on a beer, coaster, and he writes down her landlady, staying on top of the address Ingrid. Von hooked up and the, big poster he folds up twice then stuffs inside his coat pocket that's right at the barman and he promises he'll see what you can do I remembered tourist I was telling him about it Shell's D'Antoni, only movie she was in as an extra, in some Italian.

Brushstrokes, and then, sold, them off for nine hundred thousand, dollars in an auction of some hot market, New York City gallery, but, Victoria, Oh Victoria. All that work. Shaco. Dollar-euro. Goddamn. Frank even to show for it but she will be Oh rest. Assured yes she will that is by far the most important. Thing that, Victoria. Me forever enshrined. If. She moves back home it wouldn't necessarily mean. That she end up busking, on a stool I didn't love square with her violin no there, are other sweaters, if she moves back home is ribbon entrenching and walking down the road and some Rando, would just come up to her violin. Classical music record yes, he. Would start raving there, is a chance for all his slim one when, she goes for a swim in Amsterdam's. Public, swimming pool she, feels like an 11 year old again standing. In front of the mirror at the gala Gill swimming pool in Ramat Gan parting. Her hair with a comb her. Hair is all wet it's, 9 degrees, outside I really. Could do with a former, show colada milk. Hot. Chocolate. Good. Job. Well. Done. What. Do the people eat in your home country. Hummus.
