Sock of a Dog

A murderer – hospital attendant. In daylight he puts the disguiser on his head. If you write, be yourself, if you are yourself, better don't write, says the tradition. Because nobody does know better than you do what is behind the form that adapts itself, the form that chooses its victim.
