Petr Král Quote

by Nicole Trilivas

 “You step out into a Saturday morning, rising late you slip between slivers of time with the gentle imprecision that only the most genial of mornings affords; only rejoining the living- as if obliquely- when you plant your elbows on the bar of a cafe to order a coffee which you will drink as, with half-an-eye, you watch the hazy backwash of the street outside. To then let yourself venture out to meet yourself, propelled by the scalding liquid, unexpectedly real, which moves over your tongue and slips down your throat with a residue of night, is, despite your offhand manner, to put in an honourable appearance at the very heart of the vague.”

–Czech Writer, Petr Král, from Working Knowledge
