Red room - from "Zen, or the Skill to Catch a Killer," episode 2

You may think I've gone
but I've got good news.
Make a wish:
twenty-five years later
I promise you a
red-draped room and
the correct words
for these sub-titles.
Filled with secrets
the shadow of a bird
passes above.
my arms bend back
and I feel like I know
something terrible.
Where we're from
a pretty song is
almost exactly like
sympathetic pain.
Dance around the table,
as oddly stilted
as your speech.
This dream is on your mouth.
You know who killed it now.
