Henry Fuller's Epiphany

"I laugh at the stars and the houses and I laugh at the last month and the last year and the last sixteen years, and it's all just too hilarious to stop. It's too absurd. I am so sick and tired of trying to make sense of it. Bill just sits there smiling. I could explain it to him and I will after, but you can't explain it. You just feel it. You could laugh or you could cry, like they say, or you could gouge out your eyes with garden shears and stagger blindly in rebellion. But it seems a little impractical. So you learn to yawn, I guess. Not in blindness, but in clarity. In such lucidity that to get hung up on details is endlessly, riotously funny."

Lerman, Drew 2007 Magic City p. 315
