I am walking around these four walls. I am walking around these four walls.

“MARIA 3

I walked up and down between those four walls with lumps of saltpeter and big dark brown stains,

dragging my feet on the flagstones. I walked endlessly back and forth across that floor and also

crawled over it on my hands and knees, and my not lifting my feet was due partly to exhaustion,

but even more than that to the fact that it was an unnecessary effort whenI knew every last inch of

that floor by heart.”
