Fate betides thee in the crisp edge, as you and your friends have called it – where you have so often found and been found by each other – where it’s easy to meet and split – the place that is not nowhere, but near it. I know where that is, and where you go. I am the other one. I am the tide of the storm-brought flood, and your footing will have no purchase. Time betides thee, and the hurry of the moment.
