Hesbaye, the countryside, bucolic landscapes. Meadows for animals, fields for men. Trucks on the roads. Then, the animals are kept inside the sunless and climateless sheds. For fattening, foods. Men, as thieves, are waiting for the night to transfer bulls, cows and calves. A border is crossed, invisible thread between human and inhuman, a language's fence between Flemish and Wallon. Saint-Trond for some of them, Sint-Truiden for others. The rules, the rites, the laws of a weird and unusual place : the market. A waltz is being danced where sounds, men and beasts are mixed. Their gestures, screams. They grap, search, estimate the risks with their hands. This is not the place for blood nor butchery. It is only the right place for good bargains. To buy, to sell, to be bought or to be sold, such is the law. Then, might as well be the other one, the silliest : the beast. The sunset is rising, the strange party is ending. Water erases men's memory and gives them an human face again. They lived the separations.
