the last book I ever read (The King by Donald Barthelme, excerpt two)

from The King by Donald Barthelme:

“Sir, do you yield?”

“Heaven forfend,” said the Black Knight.

“Would you care to rest, just for a moment?”

“You are an ever-courteous knight,” said the Black Knight, “and yes, I could do with a moment’s surcease.”

The two sitting together, their helms removed, sharing a bit of Brie-with-pepper on pebble bread.
