Excerpt

er mit der Schneide violinbogenartig über seine Stiefelsohle, während er, auf einem Bein stehend, vorgebeugt, gleichzeitig dem Klang des Messers an seinem Stiefel, gleichzeitig in die schicksalsvolle Seitengasse lauschte. Warum duldete das alles der Private Pallas, der in der Nähe aus seinem Fenster im zweiten Stockwerk das alles beobachtete? Ergründe die Menschennatur! Mit hochgeschlagenem Kragen, den Schlafrock um den weiten Leib gegürtet, kopfschüttelnd blickte er hinab. Und fünf Häuser weiter, ihm schräg gegenüber, sah Frau Wese, den Fuchspelz über ihrem Nachthemd, nach ihrem Manne aus, der heute ungewöhnlich lange zögerte. Endlich ertönt die Türglocke vor Weses Bureau, zu laut für eine Türglocke, über die Stadt hin zum Himmel auf, und Wese, der fleißige Nachtarbeiter, tritt, in dieser Gasse noch unsichtbar, nur durch das Glockenzeichen angekündigt, aus dem Haus; gleich zählt das Pflaster seine ruhigen Schritte.
