“When he first begins to commute to the University of Potsdam he takes the S-Bahn to Golm, a tiny station in a place he could not have gone to before. One day, on his way there, he looks out the window of the train and spots an engineer with his trousers open. They’re in Greibnitzsee, where the train begins. The train rolls – its brake unsecured – and the engineer looks up as he’s taking a pee, tries to fasten his trousers, and runs to catch up with the train again, stumbling.”
