For a long time, Roland Barthes kept in a drawer a piece of rib that had been surgically removed from his chest when he was a child (by returning it to him the Swiss physicians stressed: your body belongs to you, every part of it). The drawer was the kind intended to ease the dying of objects, to let them acclimatise for a certain amount of time, in a long and bleak agony. If one day he manages—at last—to rid himself of this piece of bone by throwing it down from the balcony, he sends a scout ahead with that.
