During the night, something crept into our domestic silence, but we were unable to determine where some of the sounds in that suspicious ruckus were coming from. From the closet, perhaps? At any rate, it would seem that the whole of humanity, as it observes itself in the mirror, is struggling to recognize its own features, and now, we all wear a mask. Perhaps the nocturnal visitors that disturbed our peace with their fidgeting were rodents? Or maybe they were just creaking thoughts or images moving about inside our closet… Perhaps we fell asleep in front of the TV watching an old movie like “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” and the scrambled bodies of those characters with their altered minds have vanished, leaving only their outlines behind?
Are we now intruders in their territory? A grotesque irony and even a little cheer peers out, a detached, mocking mood that – every now and then –, takes advantage of a favorable misunderstanding, dispelling the darkness or indulging in a mocking gesture that takes us across the ford into neutral territory.
