Atto Primo: Scena Prima

Notte.
Un albero.
Stai annegando in una stanza di piscio brillante.
Pensi che le tue scarpe siano troppo strette.

Un uomo, che ti ricorda tuo fratello, ti trascina giù. Tu ti domandi se non sei stato tu a trascinarlo giù per primo.

Ti chiede una luce.


Atto Secondo: Scena Prima

Notte.
Una staccionata.
Vedi una luce.

Guardi da dietro i cespugli i tuoi genitori che preparano la cena
Le tue sorelle intrecciano i capelli una all’altra e danno vita ai loro reciproci problemi.

Avresti bisogno di fumare o di fare una pisciata.
Sei ubriaco fradicio.

Act One : Scene One

Night.
A tree.
You are drowning in a room of glowing piss.
You think your shoes are too tight.

A man, who reminds you of your brother, let you down. You wonder if you let him down first.

He asks for a light.


Act Two : Scene One

Night.
A fence.
You see a light.

You watch your parents make dinner from behind the bushes.
Your sisters braid each others' hair and give birth to each others' problems.

You could use a smoke or a piss.
You are drunk as hell.
