Asian fast food restaurant, served by a non-Asian middle-aged woman.
She is withdrawn. Why does she work here? We don’t know. Formica,
wallpaper, grease and fat, artificial flowers, Asian calendar,
gallery of meal images over the bar. A place of lives gone astray and
of loneliness. People who have decided to die yet they will have
their meal still today. The room is closely packed and the guests’
elbows clash every so often when they cut their food. You’ll
overhear the discussion from a neighboring table whether you will it
or not. And so, the waitress listens.
to tie a hangman’s noose? How to settle one’s estate? Block one’s
bank account, terminate one’s agreement with the telephone
operator, and cancel one’s social networks profile. Someone leaves
this world well prepared and someone just wishes to depart. How often
did he have to stand over an abyss and look downwards before he
jumped? Or did he stand there just once? And what it may be like
in the moments shortly after a suicide was done?
