Spiderman on Tuesday.

These names by the roadside are now familiar: Keert de Koe, Botterberg, Capaia, Mesech...
Children wait for the school bus. The mist lies in the lowlands. Every morning a little old lady sweeps the dust around the laborer's cottages with a Bluegum branch.
Always, the washing line beckons. On Fridays there are rows of blue overalls, empty arms and legs flapping in the breeze. Today we dressed the shack of a character who, on Monday, will die in a tree-felling accident. There's a dog who lives in a rusty oil barrel and a small boy who never, ever smiles. His name is Marius. God of War. But they call him Janneman.
