    The Tunnel ePUB õ Ï ePUB airdomains.co tunnel mobile, The Tunnel ePUBThere are so many possible ways of existence “We have not lived the right life” But is there the right life to be lived? The Tunnel belongs among those books one drowns in like in the delugeThe man of action has a destiny a star he follows and it draws him on like the Magi or so it’s said; the taillight of a car it’s said; the flag of a deer The creator courts the muse pays tribute and pursues sucks sips sniffs puffs pops screws – for the favor of his Fancy The visionary sees the future like a dream draped dressmaker’s dummy as silks pinned to the canvas skin of a shameless wire veined manikin But we historians we poets of the past tense we wait for our tutelary spirits to find us; we sit in one place like the spider; and until that little shiver in the web signals the enmeshment of our prey we look within for something to lighten our nightmare the wei
