Cosas Que Leo #161: BLOOD MERIDIAN, Cormac McCarthy

“Five wagons smouldered on the desert floor and the riders dismounted and moved along the bodies of the dead argonauts in silence, those right pilgrims nameless amongst the stones with their terrible wounds, the viscera spilled from their sides and the naked torsos bristling with arrowshafts. Some by their beards were men but wore strange menstrual wounds between their legs and no man’s parts for these had been cut away and hung dark and strange from their grinning mouths. In their wigs of dried blood they lay gazing up with ape’s eyes at brother sun now rising in the east.”
