Video. Han ler.
They had told me about her death. In Hong Kong papers I had read that Worm Winther was accused of the murder. Later I heard he was released, although common Hong Kong opinion made him guilty.
During these years abroad I often remembered her. Now too, although I wanted to think about him - he was the one left to suffer,and I didn't care what he'd done or not done. She smiled as I sat there, as when I was little. She'd always been a riddle. Her face as delicate as that of a chinese, I'd heard someone say. It wasn't skinny, but soft to touch. So pale!
Such things I thought about, but he was accused of murder. It was difficult to keep quiet.
Worm Winther is innocent.
But he was a riddle too, maybe all people are so different they are impossible to understand. He was a joker, people said, he could say the most unbelievable things, and they laughed and wondered a little, but liked him. He was closer to me than her, I think.
He was the most beautiful man in Hong Kong. You could see it.
Video. Let's wait, until we are too old to go crazy.
I asked, if that was the reason he hurt so many people.
He was a good man. Once he saw an angel bending above his sweating body, touching his screaming mouth with the tip of it's wing.
That's Hong Kong. And there is my sister. That's how she looks, not better. You would think she'd already experienced the grave. We stood for a while, not touching each other. She had his eyes, but they were to big for her face. This is more a spirit than a body, I thought.
Worm is up in the attic, she said. He very seldom comes down. He doesn't wan't to talk anymore. But from time to time he is here and talks as if nothing has happened. It scares me.
Video. Okei, it's been some changes since you left. Big changes.
It's been some changes since you left. Big changes. Big changes okei.
Video. He tipped his fingernails against the table. Smiles came and went across his face.
Yes, I said, but we don't care much about her death.
Video. They said I had read the bible.
It was a lie. Sooner or later the murderer will be found.
People talk and shut their mouths, that's how it is. Could we change that?
I'm glad I'm not dead.
If I only knew what he meant! It's as if he'd told me everything, edverything about nothing.
Video. He laughed. I loved her, you shouldn't have seen it, you shouldn't have been there.
I realized that I was holding her hand. What on earth was going on? Where was my thoughts coming from? I drank. Hong Kong was paradise. Crossing over to the birdmarked I suddenly remembered, my first child was made in Hong Kong.
What did you want?
Nothing, I didn't do anything. And I want tell you more than I know. I know I can eat you.
I've been sitting here long enough, answering.
This is my revenge, she said, I'm dying.
Hong Kong is a society built on paper and opium, and it's no way out. This is a mask. No face can sleep like this. But don't ever take me serious. I had already killed him in my heart. Do you think like me?
Video. No never.
We didn't expect storm that night. Midsummer, no canon, blue sky, and we had bought some very old china
Peking opera pŒ telefon fra Hong Kong.
A mountain had moved in front of me. The mountain was you. You have to be alone.
I didn't do it, you say and I'm there at once, and where have I been all my life.
It was a man who had a wife. He loved her, and didn't know anybody
who could be compared to her. He woke up one night. She didn't resemble. The man was scared. Maybe I am. She went out. He followed. He went to bed before she came.
She stood a long time on the floor before she took her clothes off and went to bed. She didn't touch him, he heard no breathing. Suddenly she fell over. It's nothing more to say.
Video. I could have danced.
Let's change faces. I am the British Empire.

Owie gowie was a worm a little worm was he. One day he passed a railwaytrack and
Owie gowie was he.
It's nothing more to say.
Video. He turned his head and looked down. You should clean me
from the table.
I have lived in Hong Kong. That was my fun. Do you think it's ugly?
Video. Continue. She has the wrong attitude.
Then it may be difficult.
This woman, she said, I had to go out that night. I didn't know what to do.
I don't believe in dreams.
Believe me - nobody ever saw murder.
You're the hammer on the nail. Yes, you are the hammer on the nail.
I want to get paid for this.
I have blood on my hands, I must bleed.
I love it. Continue.
It was a pain in the ass, the way she was.
Video. No you don't.
Worm Winther was dancing, without a movement, without a sound.
I have my Hong Kong.
