A single silhouette moves in the corner.
It is a man.
He is sobbing to himself,
Clutching a bottle of beer
Like it is his newborn babe.
"I work so hard."
"I work for you, for all of you."
"And I get no respect."
"I won't put up with bullshit."
"I work so hard..."
The light of a solitary lamp flickers.
The walls are spattered with red.
"I love you all so much."
The man coos
Rubbing his fingers together
As if to clean them.
"I will always take care of you."
"Always take care of you..."
The man speaks to a second shape.
It does not move at all.
"But I won't put up with bullshit."
The man repeats
Shaking a shining object.
It is a knife.
From the silhouette
A shining puddle spreads across the floorboards.
"No... I won't put up with it."
The man says
Over and over
