Description:
Synopsis:
I. Moonshine: I listen to sounds of the medieval city. It goes quiet. The moon sticks its tongue out like a hanged man.
II. The earth is like a scented flower... I said and closed the window. In the illuminated windowpane the cross of Golgotha is burned in black. Ghosts start to haunt the room - all small matters. But then there is SCARBO, biting me in my neck and sticking his finger in the bleeding wound.
III. Your shroud will be a spider's web, Scarbo whispers, and I will bury the spider with you. I would like to float on the lake on an aspen leaf, but the beetle would eat you, Scarbo says. Well then, I will wind you in snake skin like a mummy, and in the crypt of Saint Bänigne you will listen to the crying of the unborn babies.
IV. Still moonshine. Scarbo, on the roof, is sieving guilders and ducats; false money falls on the street. The fool, who wonders through the deserted city every night, eagerly picks up the coins. The moon sets. In my cellar, Scarbo mints coins. Am I awake? A lost snail slowly crawls on my illuminated window.
