Example text

In horror the mystics lean back against the backs of their chairs. The leg of one of them dangles helplessly. Another makes strange movements with his hand. A third stares wide-eyed. Having come to after some time, they whisper loudly. – She’s arrived! – How white her clothes are! – The emptiness in her eyes! – Her features are pale as marble! – Behind her shoulder – a scythe. – This is Death! Pierrot has heard. Having arisen slowly, he approaches the girl, takes her by the hand and leads her to the middle of the stage.

You’ve lost your mind. FIRST. So be it. You are powerless without me. Believe me, her father’s creative intoxication and the rage of the last several generations are in her. SECOND. What can we do? FIRST. Wait this day out. This evening she’ll be talking with the people and the king. SECOND. Another whole day? Empty and light? It would be better to die. FIRST. I swear: We will all die toward nightfall. VOICE OF THE THIRD. ) We will die. (It is broad daylight. The city wakes up – the music of morning noises is all the more audible.

They disperse. The Third emerges from behind the stone. In the dry features of his face and his bony body he is, more than anything, like a bird. On the square in front of the palace, people start walking by. Several dandies pass to and fro. ) FIRST WORKER. Work has begun. Come along quickly. SECOND WORKER. Yesterday one of them came to talk with us. He forbade us to build. He said the storm would shatter everything. (They pass by in a hurry. The wind chases little streams of dust. A pale woman is selling roses.
