Everything Must Be Forgotten

Art and Text by Marten Bart Stork:

Everything Must Be Forgotten

I remember you.

How do you remember me?

Do we remember accurately?

 

I don’t remember being born.

Or where I was before.

 

Because everything must be forgotten.

So we can do it all again.

 

Eternal repetition.

The show must go on.

 

And we will play every scene.

In every possible way.

And we will play all the different roles.

Forever and always.

 

But we must keep on forgetting.

So we can do it all again.

 

We must keep on forgetting.

Or else we go insane.
