AN INTERVIEW

What is today's date?

Wow - some time between 1930 and 1970.

How often do you see your family?

In the past the man would formally introduce me to them once and then I'd mostly see them from a distance. But now I'm living in very close quarters with a few of them which is awful.

What are your rules?

Do not sit on me. Have a good time all the time.

Why are you inside a box?

You'd have to ask the man. He never took me out, he seems to like keeping me in here. When he was here with me I understood why but now I'm baffled.

Do you find yourself attractive?

O, big time.

Describe how thoughts reverberate inside your corrugated compound?

(in a sing-song voice) They go up and down They go round and round They have a great bloody time

What is your favourite thing about your appearance?

Rude.

How do you restore your energy levels when they get low?

Redundant.

Do you like being lonely?

It's my favourite way to be. It's the only guarantee that I'm among equals.

What are your politics?

Me first.

What is the meaning of life?

Life is not something that interests me.

Do you like being lonely?

I've already answered that.

What do you wear?

Nothing, but if I wore something I'd wear it better.

What do you do for a living?

I'm well looked after.

Do you like being lonely?

It's preferable. If I could make choices I'd choose it.

Do you like being lonely?

(sings) The first time ever I lay with you, and felt your heart beat over mine, I thought our joy would fill the world and last till the end of time, my love, and last till the end of time: (normal register) I've never felt this way.

Do you like being lonely?

It's all I know.

Do you like being lonely?

As far as I know he isn't coming back.

Do you like being lonely?

(sings) I get along without you very well, of course I do. Except to hear your name, or someone's laugh that is the same. But I get along without you

very well

Do you like being lonely?

I'm not lonely I've got the entire modernist canon.

Do you like being lonely?

Ok listen: there's really no way for me to answer that. I was designed and constructed in a certain way. This is the only way of being I've ever known. I've been instrumentalised into expressing something about loneliness and I don't think you can expect me to say whether I like that or not.

I express what I express. What I am is a reflection on and a proposal about a distance between things that on some fundamental level can never be bridged. Whether or not this distance actually exists outside this proposal I do not know. Somewhat incidentally I also describe one strategy that might be used to soothe the awareness of this distance, which may or may not exist. This is my condition.

I'm very happy with myself. I'm very beautiful. I'm in part about loneliness. Do I like that about myself? Do I like being lonely? Am I lonely? -

(sings) I get along without you very well. Except perhaps in spring, but I should never think of spring, for that would surely break my heart in two.
