CUPID

faces viewer
pointing bow to right side
at

NEMESIS

seen as a silhouette
inside a

CAVE

with light coming from
inside, the shadow
living on the outside,

CUPID

is dimly lit
by the distant light
of the

CAVE

which is called

HUKOMMELSE

inside of which

NEMESIS

stands
and also holds a bow
to shoot at

CUPID

and the two are captured
in this momentary standoff
while

NEMESIS

backs away as if to say
to

CUPID

that the arrow of love
hurts more than it
pleases.
