Rochford is Boylan with impatience for me to show Blazes his bit of code when I see him later. I’ll sound him out. This is it, whatever sense you want to make out of it: 010101000111010101110010011011100010000001001110011011110111011100100000010011110110111000100000001010000111000001100001011110010010000001100001011101000111010001100101011011100111010001101001011011110110111000100000011101000110111100100000011101000110100001100101001000000110111001101111011101110010111000101001 Richie Goulding on financial business for Goulding, Collis and Ward walked blindly toward a woman no longer young, smiling, as she rushed, fully absorbed, toward him, on her way from superior courtroom W-331 to courtroom E-173. Money to be made, Tom says, telling people what they see now. Label the now and they’ll enjoy it more. Augment that reality. From Boeing Field, a string of stretch suv’s, one bearing flags, made its way toward the freeway. Maybe money there but I’ll get mine some other how. I have my methods. He’s a hero, Tom, you know that? Saved somebody stuck down a manhole, the one just down there under the poster of that dauby chick with the yellow hair. Poor devil stuck halfway to hell choking to death on sewer fumes and down went Tom, tied a rope around him and up they hauled them both. The act of a real hero. Ambulance. Can’t hear myself type. Anyway, the race is on soon. Bantam Lyons is putting everything he’s got on a horse somebody gave him that hasn’t an ice cube’s chance in hell. McCoy kept himself out of it. I can take my time; she doesn’t need these steaks yet. I don’t think he appreciated my story about that dinner at Glencree either; he has some kind of feeling for Bloom maybe. Says his wife sang there but did she? Come on. She a star? Please. The bright stars fade. Anyway, it was blue o’clock in the morning when we left with the car top down and I sat next to Bloom’s wife trying to get her top down. Unfurnished Apartments, picked up and placed again on the window sash. Bloom playing the astronomer pointing out this comet and that comet and stars and stars. Left me to pay attention to his wife’s moon. What star is that Poldy, she said. Just a pinprick, needle dick. He’s all right, though, Bloom.
