The Demiurge Should Not

Le démiurge ne doit pas se pomener selon les jardins

Демиург не должен гулять по своим садам, – послушно прочитал портье.  И уже от себя добавил: – Почему это – не должен? И кто, интересно, ему запретит?

Translation (by yours truly):

Le démiurge ne doit pas se pomener selon les jardins

“The demiurge should not walk in his own gardens,” read the porter obediently.  And then added, from himself, “Why shouldn’t he though?  And who, pray, would stop him?”

– Max Frei, The Great Wain
