My name was Max. I was fresh off the boat from Odessa when I met Yüan Meng Ch’ien. I became one of his best friends, or rather, his only friend. Poor as a church mouse, I was glad of the shelter his mansion gave me, and the new clothes and plentiful food weren’t bad either. All this came to a certain price, however. You might have heard about his…, well, quirks? His obsession, the collection, the knick-knacks, all that? Let me tell you, I got to be his masterpiece. Once he had finished me off, he made me his totem, his idol, and his alone. For all time! No woman could ever give him that. My heart will beat eternally just for him, and just through him. That is real commitment. Not the worst a friend can offer, I’d say. [Katharina Droste]
