Daniil Kharms, p.7


     Once there lived a red-haired man who lacked eyes and ears. He was also lacking all hair, so he was called red-haired only with a large degree of generalization.
     He couldn’t speak, as he was lacking a mouth. The same with his nose. Even arms and legs, he just didn’t have any. Nor stomach, nor backside, nor spine. And no intestine. He didn’t have anything! Therefore it is totally unclear who is being discussed.
     In fact, let’s not talk about him anymore.
