“Let us permit nature to have her way. She understands her business better than we do.”
-Michel de Montaigne

Dad? What are you doing?
You look so scary now.

Dad? What are you doing?
You approach me like a predator.

An animal stalking its prey
Snarling, smacking his lips
You're really starting to startle me




Oh my god. What have you done? What have you done?

I don't understand what has happened…
It's a big blur right now. I can't recall, I don't remember.
I don't want to remember.

What have I done? What have I done?
It's all my fault, isn't it?
I caused you to do this to me…
Right? RIGHT?

With my nights shirts,
I provoked the monster within you.
Everything would be easier if I didn't confess.
A ruptured union...you need to be far away.
My whole family is now stuck in this mess.

I can't stand the sight of you.
I can't look you into the eye?
Why do you feel no remorse?
You deserve to die.
