Tusea vecinului din apartamentul de sus mă trezeşte la miezul nopţii. O tuse tabagică de bărbat singur. Vibrează, străbate pereţii şi mă loveşte în plex, mai puternic decît sunetul vestitei Viori Roşii.
My upstairs neighbour’s cough wakes me at midnight. The heavy-smoker cough of a man living alone. It’s vibrating, it goes through the walls and smacks into my solar plexus harder still than the sound of the reputed Red Violin.
