Scene I

„At the Rostock Institute of Zoology, ticks were kept alive in captivity without eating for eighteen years. When a mammal passes under the tick’s lookout and hunting post, she drops down. It is the smell of rancid butter emanating from the animal’s coetaneous glands that guides her.“

there will be no skin, no blood, merely objects, no movement, no death, bare interior, dim light and it might be a bit dry.

I have a sinus infection, if I sound a little nasal and you can’t understand what I’m saying please excuse me.
