|Project||It must be a Camel|
A lone man chances upon a dead amphibian on the road. He takes it home. He opens the creature and finds eggs. But they are not ordinary eggs. So he can’t eat them. Soon, he finds another dead lizard on the road, the same spot where he found the first one. It would have been fine if he had just walked away from it, but he doesn’t. He takes it home again. No eggs this time, just a lot of jewelry in the stomach. His lonely life isn’t quiet anymore. He is pursued by a host of eclectic characters, which includes a woman who is possibly in love with him.
The man and woman in this story appeared out of my blurred memories. They showed up one time and again like a punctual soldier in my dreams. Steering through my vague memories, I place them in my own creation of time and place. When I finished writing, they were born again, but they also die on paper. Their lives are sadder and lonelier than my own. That’s the fate I have bestowed upon them. If they could refute, they would leap out and hit my head and yell at me: “I don’t deserve this sad life. I want lots and lots of happiness!” Though piercing, it sounds frank, and not unreasonable. Allow me to indulge in melancholy one more time; I promise I’ll write a comedy the next time.
