of Krutanulos in a brain: since ten years: at first filled notebooks in a lineechka, then sheets of writing paper and filled with the imaginations …

- I in writers do not mark, - another answers, drawing on sand a pattern a boot sock. - Just a wish arose which - what to describe.
- And you know, at you the direct speech fine turns out. It seldom happens.
- Yes? And how to you in general? - Yes it is entertaining to
to read was … It from life of rockers, and I know nothing about them.
- And I any more not rokeryu! - also rushed in a brain a hurricane: night streets of Moscow, interlacing of motley fires, and feeling of flight, freedom penetrating each atom of a body, and speed - remarkable speed - as if swirling consciousness a difficult labyrinth.
Another presented mountains of sheets, stalagmites accruing on a table - the stalagmites covered with a small pattern of texts -
demolished then, thrown out … - Well, we go?

RAGS of MEMOIRS

the Father and mother of one - the uncle and the aunt of another will arrive in the evening, and tomorrow, on Saturday will carry children on Blue lakes where a zolotist sand, and brisk small lizards curl at bushes, and depth begins from the coast at once.
I will be still trips for mushrooms, with a rising at five in the morning, and it is necessary to suck sugar for visual acuity, and velvet paws of fir-trees hide strong families of boletuses, and the grandmother waits with a tasty lunch …

the Grandmother - such dead - lay many years later on a table of one of country rooms, and a coffin, empty and terrible, waited for it greedy. In a year the uncle, the aunt - behind it died: did not take out life without it, could not, did not manage … motley rags of memoirs what will never disappear Remain
, will not fade even … - To the Yurkiny grave we will pass

- we Will pass, we will pass. They together lie - the grandmother, Is brisk …
the Provincial cemetery, close density of graves, crosses, rusty fencings, blazing of flowers - and trees, huge as towers. Balls gry pour, disturbing air.
- you Remember Yurka? - the senior cousin asks.
- Not - and … I remember for some reason a dog it - Freda: soft such, with a brilliant hair, mokronos …
Having untwisted a wire, come on a site; get a bottle, plastic glasses from a package. - Have a snack on
