The camp is silent with resignation; only the turkey is making a racket. It attacked me, overestimating its own strength, and I quickly grabbed its neck, which squirmed and tried to swallow, slapped him left-right with the casual elegance of the arrogant cavaliers I had seen in French Musketeer films, who dutifully do fancy swordplay, and let the vain albino go. His feelings hurt, he trotted away, wiggling his rump but with his wings still spread in conceited display.
Werner Herzog, Camisea, Peru, June 1981; from Conquest of the Useless: Reflections from the Making of ‘Fitzcarraldo’.
