window

What do you see from outside your window?

There are some old buildings

They don’t look like they will last very long

I can’t tell you more

The curtains are closed

How are you?

It rained yesterday

The sky has been overcast for most of today

Its cool at night

How are you?

I’m fineĀ 

So what are you planning to do?

There is an empty light socket in my room

The material catches the light from the hall with a dull glow

The hall light is on

I go to sleep looking at it sometimes

I have been staying in this room for a year now and its time to leave

The light socket is still empty and I’m sleepy

Goodnight then.

ACT 3 – 002 (Death)

The disease is not the thing itself

if you want to find the meaning of the disease (the cure)

do not look at its signs

they will point back to the question

that is the disease itself

 

if you want to know what the disease is

you need to ask

of what is it a sign?

 

we shared a silence for the longest time.
i realized i had begun to comprehend.
my mind was back in my body.

 

he pointed a finger to his head

like he was holding a gun

 

there is a war going on here

with his other hand he hailed the open window

it’s going on out there too

it has spared no one

 

suddenly he began to scream

why doesn’t anybody FEEL it?!

 

he looked back at me

there were tears in his eyes

his skin looked much grey-er than it had before

 

i looked at my hand

it looked like it was made of human skin

with human muscle and human bone underneath it

and maybe a soul

 

good bye.

he left

a long shadow of the early evening followed behind him.

 

The eyes of the black coats

gleamed

through their veils…
