Before Class - a poem and image by T Newfields
Melissa: Failures as hiccups? Isn't that too blithe? What kind of rubbish is this?
Liao: Perhaps this Newfields bloke is echoing a point made by Kundera that we need a certain amount "lightness" in life. Most people take themselves far too seriously, as if their tiny ant-like existence actually mattered.
Satoru: Kundera – isn't that a type of sneaker?
Liao: (pausing a few seconds) Well . . . I suppose we could say that. Ugh - yeah! In a sense, you are absolutely correct . . .
