dive into a love letter
from one scarecrow to another
they have SUPERNATURAL abilities and perform rituals
to heal together
they suffer from trauma and anxiety
and are banned to a forgotten valley of dying stars
a beating heart
or is it a beach?
the two scarecrows became guardians of the night
and spoon in harmony
trying to protect each other
from danger

-Have you ever felt like you wanted to explode?
-No, but we could explode together if you like…
-That’s impossible
-You haven’t seen anything my friend! The horror, the drama, I am a river!

‘Did you know, a seed has to destroy itself before it becomes a flower?’



what you will see is
something weird
it’s about
two goblins named Eve and Adam
dying (but not dead yet)
in a cave

the cave used to be a mine
and then a storage place for radioactive waste
so now it’s infected with dark shadows
and infecting them

the cave is their home
or their body
or are their bodies the cave?
it’s full of scars,
that’s for sure,
collected through history and being

but so the question is: what is dying (but not dead yet) with them?

it’s strange
how all these things do not belong together,
but somehow they seem to make up a whole
