The scene is taking place within a shop, within a shopping centre. The scene will
involve body, sound, sculpture, text and voice. Behind the scene a relationship
with a seagull is formed.
So I open my mouth and you look inside. It is enlarged now and easy to follow
the arrowed path down to the heart. You reach it’s beat.
The Vena cava is stretched at length. It has darkened.
The aorta, a distant throb, a distilled ripple.
The landscape is forming, between the mouth and the heart. It grows at its own
pace and is measured in colour. The mouth makes noise. This noise, a fuzz of
sound causes light to freeze around objects. We become poetry. We become beat.
We become beat poets.
