unremembered ‘The other room was very populous. There were many boxes, which were overflowing with items. These had writings in their sides. A white cloth was overwhelming from the box marked WEDDINGS AND OTHER CELEBRATIONS. The box marked PRIVATES: JOURNALS/ DIARIES/ SKETCHBOOKS/ UNDERWEAR was so overfilled that it appeared prepared to rupture. There was another box, marked SILVER/ PERFUME/ PINWHEELS , and one marked WATCHES/ WINTER, and one marked HYGIENE/ SPOOLS/ CANDLES, and one marked FIGURINES/ SPECTACLES. If I had been a smart person, I would have recorded all the names on a piece of paper, as the hero did in his diary, but I was not a smart person, and have since forgotten many of them. Some of the names I could not reason, like the box marked DARKNESS, or the one with DEATH OF THE FIRST BORN written in pencil on its front. I noticed there was a box on the top of one of these skyscrapers of these boxes that was marked DUST.’ from ’Everything Is Illuminated” by Jonathan Safran Foer
