Χ & Z at the land of nothing
Based on Samuel Beckett's Texts for Nothing
“…and I’ll be able to go on, no, I’ll be able to stop, or start, another guzzle of lies but piping hot, it will last my time, it will be my time and place, my voice and silence, a voice of silence, the voice of my silence.
It’s with such prospects they exhort you to have patience, whereas you are patient, and calm, somehow somewhere calm, what calm here, ah that’s an idea, say how calm it is here, and how fine I feel, and how silent I am, I’ll start right away, I’ll say what calm and silence, which nothing has ever broken, nothing will ever break, which saying I don’t break, or saying I’ll be saying, yes, I’ll say all that tomorrow, yes, tomorrow evening, some other evening, not this evening, this evening it’s too late, too late to gets things right, I’ll go to sleep, so that I may say, hear myself say, a little later, I’ve slept, he’s slept, but he won’t have slept, or else he’s sleeping now, he’ll have done nothing, nothing but go on, doing what, doing what he does, that is to say, I don’t know, giving up, that’s it, I’ll have gone on giving up, having had nothing, not being there.” ― Samuel Beckett, Stories and Texts for Nothing.
