Extinguish the candles, cut the sound, Take a gulp of darkness and stillness, Or find a reliable branch, Or knock a nail deep into the sill. Get the extra tickets as soon as you can: I go to a public hanging, I neither go as a spectator nor a lunatic - I indeed go to be hanged, Without an executioner (the executioner will be hissed off the stage) I go to commit suicide.
Elisabeth Jelinek. Translation, 2018
