Sunday Sentence: Goat Mountain

As inspired by Fobbit author David Abrams at The Quivering Pen, the best sentence(s) I read this week, presented without further context or commentary:


The darkness a great muscle tightning, filled with blood, a living thing already before god came to do his work. No first breath but an earlier animation and pulse and pressure. I lay in that darkness waiting, and I did not sleep, and the stars meant  nothing but only the dark spaces between them.

-- David Vann, Goat Mountain
