#MilitantFactionsQuotes 02: "We met in Reykjavik. This is not a love song."

#MilitantFactionsQuotes 02:

"We met in Reykjavik. This is not a love song. Maria was 45, Italian, Padua or thereabouts, with long, toothy cheekbones and a smirking, vivid, gloss-lined mouth. Beneath her dyed black hair and Cruella-caricatured lashes Maria’s eyes had some strange flittering quality like she was following empty shadows round the walls. She wore a black dress and low heels, smoked French cigarettes constantly and spoke with a thick accent, and made it quite clear she hated the Brits.

So did I."

-From "Crystallize", first published by Aesthetica Magazine 2006, and one of the short stories in Mark Piggott's fiction/non-fiction collection "Militant Factions". Available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.
