AFTER CUT GLASS
There is no such thing as an innocent bystander… Lose an arm or leg? Your body or your mind? Trapped in a body that doesn’t listen.. The despairing journey from the freedom you once knew to the realisation of the fear of the beginning of the end. Finally, eyes closed, suffocating invisible hands that choke your breath and soul. Then. Absolution. From yourself.
You discover a rhythm more true than the original, past freedoms that seem prisons now, past shadows that are more opaque and tangible now, a life now, but a character once you used to play..
