I’ll Arrive by Train

Ingrid Z. Aanestad

I enter the house with the cold, clear body, I walk into her room, she’s sleeping and breathing quietly like before. I’m not thinking of anything. I lie down on her warm back, she wakes and turns her head to the side, she turns towards me.

She arrives by train, Eli meets her at the station in a small town by the coast. It’s winter and it’s been several years since they last saw each other. For a few weeks they live together in Eli’s house, her house that is by the sea.

I’ll Arrive by Train is an evocative, beautifully tuned piece of writing from a fastidious stylist.
