 Why did you travel?
Because the house was cold.
Why did you travel? Because it is what I have always done between sunset and sunrise.
What did you wear? I wore a blue suit, a white shirt, yellow tie, and yellow socks.
What did you wear? I wore nothing.
A scarf of pain kept me warm.
Who did you sleep with? I slept with a different woman each night.
Who did you sleep with? I slept alone.
I have always slept alone.
Why did you lie to me? I always thought I told the truth.
Why did you lie to me? Because the truth lies like nothing else and I love the truth.
Why are you going? Because nothing means much to me anymore.
Why are you going? I don't know.
I have never known.
How long shall I wait for you? Do not wait for me.
I am tired and I want to lie down.
Are you tired and do you want to lie down? Yes, I am tired and I want to lie down.
