He walked round and round like they used to make the witches do.
Wood grinding stone against stone like a madman gnashing his teeth in a deep dreamless sleep.
I felt sorry for him.
He had a hunchback and I wondered why a bone had grown there – for what purpose other than for humans to stick a piece of wood there to move him round and round the peanut crusher?
