Permets-tu?

Apollo

The insurgent

drunk in a stupor

then –

Apollo

would you like your eyes to be bandaged?

Pylades drunk

No

Orestes

fasting

It really was you

Achilles

who killed the artillery sergeant?

yes

no

Patrocles

Long live the Republic –

Ephestion

– I’m one of them

turns

looks

might as well kill two birds with one stone

It is Pylades

then, turning to Orestes, gently adds

if you don’t mind?

into the eyes of the man

who brought down a shower

of bloody raindrops

saying

I believe in you

Achilles clasps his hand

and Smiles

and then –

then –

there was one

the insurgent

Apollo

admired, loved

and venerated

a splendid statue

only

twenty-six –
