a green place: saturated green, suffused green, steeped green

 

I have been here before, Clever’s head thinks, both awake and asleep.

drenched green, dis-embodied green
fills space, fills the maid

She cannot locate her self. She is become green.

 

voices chime in the gloaming — multiple peals, a carillon of glass bells

 

Other selves are here, Clever’s head thinks. I must approach them. I must not frighten them.

Clever (never a girl to be silent): Who are you? Where are you? Talk to me. Acknowledge me. I am come to initiate a grand task. I am come to claim the relic that will save Vixen from her angry lover.

 

trios of bells — clappers ring, voices chatter amid celestial spheres

Middle: ... fetch the eye, little sister, this needs looking …

Little: ... if i retrieve eye then i look 1st ... 1st! before 2nd! before 3rd! … a sequence! a wave! …

Big: ... firstness is not negotiable … 3-in-1 … 1-in-3 … trinity is particle … quantum vis

Middle: ... the eye, big sister, quantum placet ... the eye is shared among us… 1st, before 2nd, before 3rd …
