Fade in/Fade out

Fade in:

The light shines, the curtains bustle.

They stand alone.

The stage overwhelms, the audience frightens.

Knees quake, stomachs twist,

lungs collapse, bowels drop,

eyes dart, teeth grind

a croak, a choke

bubbles from their throat.

(The eyes pierce their skin,

the silence is deafening)

Fade out:

The light dies, the curtains fall.

They stand alone, the stage collapses.

The audience dies, knees break,

stomachs snap, lungs explode,

bowels fall, eyes bleed,

teeth smash, death rattle,

last breath, blood from their mouth.

(The eyes are theirs,

the silence is theirs.)
