Crazy curving beauty of interwoven skid-marks on tarmac, like scroll-work on Anglo-Saxon carved cross unearthed from ruin; slight, crazy mystery of pylons looming out of smog-haze, like monsters' swaying heads appearing through mist on Mercian moor; crazy-house, rippling reflections of Volvo in milk-tanker, like glints of attacker's face shining for terrified moment on enemy's shield.

Grim, teeth-clenched, crazy sadness of sundered bond between liege-lord and vassal, like distance over the whale-road between silent, angry father and silent, bewildered, angry, middle-aged son.
