Offstage, the director nods. I step into light.
“None of this madness,” a sweeping gesture captures the previous action, “has made sense.

Your mind cycles through the events and characters, connecting dots in a vain attempt to draw order from chaos.
Relax.
The good news: there *is* a point to all of this.
The bad news: the fulness of that point is too much for this medium; as with a mountain on a map, all you get are some topological line hints.
Again: relax. Spread joy, not sorrow, and await the moment the final understanding grips you.”

Return to darkness.
