dedalus Posted November 26, 2012 Share Posted November 26, 2012 Slowly, slowly the little snail climbs Mount Fuji sends a message to his wife: pretty good day today! Snails have their systems. Well, dear, I made –oh - 2.5? He’d be talking about metres: Fuji has 3776 of those things going up into the snowline getting gradually colder, so pure, so apart from sweltering skin-itching, sleep-depriving bugfucked Japanese summers people endure below. Even snails in their shell have been known to complain among the roaring cicadas in their dusty pines down on the plain. Don’t take a chill my honey says Mrs. Snail. I want you back here safe and sound. It’s all right my darling. I know my way along the ground. I do not share the human hell of doing things for money. I do what I must do for the snails of Japan, for the Emperor, but most of all for you!
