"Loneliness is not a cause of death"
- Jean-Luc Godard, Made in U.S.A.
A consequence. Or a disguise.
Consciousness neither alive nor dead, like a cat with nine dreams.
A coward with nine deaths.
A murderer with nine wives.
Neither heaven nor hell but a beforelife, an irreconcilable solitude, time's reflection in a mirror that may or may not be your soul.
Not a cause, but a reason.
