Revelations Sun is resting on the leaves. It is 4pm now and The city is sleeping in silent chaos. There is an obscure movement of pain in the wind. It is a time of revelations, of unresolved stories that brings out the nail pinned in your heart to nail you further down inside the vast abyss of time. Time is distorted here. Its landscapes form from the melting sun and dissolve inside the minds. We who live with closed doors are forever pining for the lost songs of childhood to soothe our crammed souls. There is dampness everywhere- over the tin roofs, on the railway stations and over us when we cook our meals for the next day. We are used to sleeping with lies. And we live like crossroads with our entangled bodies, our hands searching for the wind birds. Do we wake or sleep?
