What does an intense look mean?
How to make up for awkward moves?

JEFF is never at a loss for words, impossible not to notice
something like that, his talent for appearing or acting so
detached.
He's always waiting for someone or something,
an event, a recommendation, he follows, is followed,
rarely looks behind him.
He's seen walking by expensive shops.
What's more, he doesn't age, the guy.

(A Hero never ages lest we retire the actor.)

World divided into distinct islets.
Each can see the real thing with one's own eyes, the exact
moves, identical towns, boundless open roads.
World unbound in delicate conversations.

          -- Too late, MURIEL …

Difficult in this dark to make out the strain upon the faces.

Translated by Andrew Maxwell
