Man on the Move

by Otto de Kat

Fast moving and full of action indeed, but with poetic insight and the universal human experience of meditating on lost and failed relationships.


It had been pure luck that they made it out of that hold. First up a ladder surrounded by hundreds of men, in a panic for the open air. Guus and he, one right behind the other amidst a ring of elbows. In grim silence they had wormed their way through the ominous howling, below them, above them. Guus in the lead, his white hair like a beacon in the darkness. 'Straight to the rail, don't wait, don't look down too long, just jump!' he had yelled to Guus.
