The scene of a car-crash passed at speed; the look in the face of a roadside vagrant, the faces on the city tube; beauty that calls the soul to arms; intimations of animality; clearings steeped in silence far from scents of the formicary.
A glitch of thought that leads by accident to an inaccessible door of the mind; an uncanny sense of vertigo.
‘Doesn’t look like anything to me.’
