I saw. I saw what I had seen before.
I became conscious. I recognized what I had seen before.
I recognized what I had recognized before. I perceived.
I perceived what I had perceived before. I became conscious.
I recognized what I had perceived before. I looked. – Handke
What do you say in the dark, what do you say in the light - what are you when you can’t be seen? What are you when you’re invisible but present? The lights won’t go up. The show started long before you got here. You’re here in this landscape, in the picture of this place - your comfort is yours to make. We’re together now, feel free to talk to me - we breathe the same air. Not a play, closer to life - terrifying. Don’t be late.
