The Two Sexes

Only two sexes? A ring on the door his replacement was there a pleasant little man thoroughly mixed in the multi-colour brew The person who brought him looked like a woman who was in the middle of a transition to a third sex, gave him an airline ticket to Iceland. Why Iceland? he asked because the volcanic island is full of people addressing each other, as miss and mister you will like it there it also has naturally heated pools and changing room for the two sexes, she said. Iceland has a mall population where everybody reads And too often, write when not going to the heated pools. Five hundred thousand books a year are published there and since everybody knows one another, it is problematic to be critical, however, there is a small clique of intellectuals who, to avoid upsetting anyone writes about movies especially, French and German experimental films. Iceland has a stunning, almost magical nature, alas, not often seen by the Icelanders, who are busy writing books spend much of the time writing books in well-heated rooms thanks to the volcanic activities that produce hot water in the radiators. Hush, don’t disturb us with obscene dancing in the street bongo drums are against the law.

Appreciate your sense of humor, although a slight exaggeration on the number of publications. But I get your drift, what does one do on a volcanic island in the Atlantic that has only one season, Winter. In Canada, we call it, Cabin Fever.
